MPs raise alarm over Mombasa gunmen attacks

15 January 2015, 20:45 Mbungu Harrison

Mombasa - Leaders in Mombasa have asked security officers to up their game and arrest an armed gang that is terrorizing residents using motorbikes.

Two people have been attacked in Mombasa in a span of one week by the gang, but police have been unable to arrest them despite public outcry.

On Sunday the Maximum Revival Ministry church secretary was shot dead by unknown assailants as he entered the church gate for morning a service in Majengo.

On Monday evening another man who was carrying a Bible from a church service was shot and injured at Buxton area in Mombasa before the gunmen escaped on a motor-bike, raising fears over attacks targeting preachers.

“I was heading home when they attacked me as I approached an open area. One of them drew a pistol and ordered me to handover a bag I was carrying and that is when they shot me," the victim said at the Coast General Hospital.

Kisauni MP Rashid Bedzimba and his counterpart from Mvita Abdulswamad Shariff Nassir are now asking the police to arrest the criminals with immediate effect.

Nassir vowed to move a motion in parliament seeking to compel motorcyclists to fit the motorcycles with tracking device to help police track criminals as the government intensifies security operations in the country.

Mombasa deputy police county commander Sevelino Kubai assured locals that police were searching for the criminals.

The move comes as religious leaders in the region renewed their demand for guns for protection.
