Fear in Kirinyaga following the resurgence of Mungiki

19 March 2015, 15:33 Jayden Kanuri

Kirinyaga - Kirinyaga County residents are living in fear after two people were murdered in cold-blood by suspected members of the outlawed Mungiki sect, believed to be making a comeback in the county.

The residents woke up to the gruesome scene of two badly mutilated bodies dumped on the banks of River Thiba.

The bodies which had their eyes removed out and their throats slit, were first spotted by locals rushing to their rice paddies.

Local deputy police boss Mohammed Huka, termed the murders as "very brutal" and promised speedy investigation to find the killers.

Huka said they are yet to establish the motive behind the killings and asked residents to avoid speculations.

The bodies were rushed to Murang’a Hospital mortuary, where a post-mortem will be conducted to establish the real cause of the deaths.

Kirinyaga County was on the limelight in 2009, during the bloody confrontation between members of the outlawed Mungiki sect and a local vigilante block that wanted to flush out the group.

But most of the Mungiki members kicked out Kirinyaga Central, found safe refuge in parts of Kirinyaga South, particularly Mwea where the two murders were reported.

“I urge residents to volunteer information so that we can bring these murderers to book," said Huka.
