50 youths arrested preparing to take Mungiki oath

28 May 2015, 13:20 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - Police in Nakuru County have raised concerns over the possible re-emergence of the outlawed Mungiki sect after tens of youths were arrested Wednesday while preparing to take an oath inside Bahati forest.

Bahati OCPD, Duncan Nguthu said that over 50 young men were arrested inside the forest where they were carrying out traditional rituals.

Speaking to the press Thursday morning in Nakuru town, Nguthu said that police raided the forest after they received a tip from a resident who spotted the youths while grazing his cattle inside the forest.

“Yesterday (Wednesday) we arrested 50 young men inside the Bahati forest where they were performing some traditional ritual rites and we suspect they are associated with the outlawed Mungiki sect but we are holding them before we present them in court today,” said Nguthu.

“The government has outlawed any activities of Mungiki and anyone found engaging in its activities will have to face full force of the law,” he added.

Just last week, area member of parliament Kimani Ngunjiri had expressed fears over the resurgence of the outlawed sect and asked police to investigate the issue.
