MRC amnesty period expires

10 April 2013, 11:21 Rodgers Buluma

The seven day period given to the Mombasa Republican Council (MRC) members to lay down their weapons and surrender to the law has ended.

The surrender period has seen 20 members of the secessionist group surrender to the law in Kwale, a region believed to be the stronghold of the MRC.

This is believed to have been triggered by the promise of the Coast Provincial commissioner Samuel Kilele that those surrendering will have a chance to walk away in amnesty.

Those who surrendered are still free and no step has been taken to use them to identify the hideout of the other group members.

There has been a series of deaths in Coast province which are linked to the secession group including the resent, where a mother, 65, and her daughter, 32, were found hanging dead with open wounds on their heads in Kisauni, Mombasa.

Police have confessed that they are having hard time dealing with MRC, a problem believed to have been caused by the superstitious techniques the group uses in its operations.

Now that the amnesty period has come to an end, all eyes of the coastal dwellers are wide open to see the step the government is going to take against the MRC.
