MRC chair records statement
09 May 2013, 13:35
Police have intensified their fight against crime by asking the Mombasa Republican Council (MRC) chairman Randu Nzai to record a statement over the recent attacks in Changamwe constituency.
The attacks that took place on Tuesday night left several houses destroyed and several people with serious injuries from the crude weapons used by the attackers.
Speaking to the media, Changamwe police boss Joseph Muthee said that Nzai who is allegedly the president of the illegal secessionist group MRC was first taken through a police interrogation over the Changamwe attacks before he was allowed to record a statement.
Recently, the deputy president William Ruto said that the MRC issue in the coastal region was being looked into at a different angle and that serious action was to be taken against those involved.
The deputy president’s word has led to the creation of a special security committee to enable investigations into the activities of the MRC.
However, this has not interfered with attacks being carried out by bandits claimed to be members of the MRC.
This is the second attack in the span of two weeks after the Frère town police patrol base attack that left a police officer critically injured and his fire arm missing.
