Police urged to act on Mvita MPs carjacking

02 April 2014, 17:50 Harrison Mbungu

Mombasa - Police in Nyali are pursuing a gang of three men linked to the carjacking of Mvita Member of Parliament, Abdulswamad Shariff Nassir. The incident that happened on Saturday also saw the MP lose cash, two mobile phones and a digital camera to the carjackers.

According to police reports, the thugs, who were armed with two pistols and an AK47 rifle, are believed to have disappeared to the nearby Kongowea village immediately after the daylight incident that occurred outside his Radio Rahma office in Nyali, Mombasa County. So far no arrests have been made.

According to the legislator, some of the gang members pointed a gun at his head threatening to shoot him as the rest frisked his pockets.

“They only asked me what I do for a living and then robbed me. They also took my parliament pass card,” he said.

He however dismissed claims that the incident was politically instigated.

“I don’t want to speculate over what happened because it seems the thugs were waiting for me. They appeared from nowhere just as I was igniting the car and took the keys.”

The Member of Parliament, who was not with his bodyguard during the incident, wants the police to effectively investigate and bring to book the gangsters.
