Nairobi – Police on Thursday defended their move to
disperse a meeting in Limuru Wednesday organised to counter another held
there by GEMA leaders two weeks ago saying intelligence reports
indicated it was meant to relaunch the outlawed Mungiki sect.
Police Spokesman Eric Kiraithe said that the Limuru 2B meeting was
cancelled after police received complaints that gangs of the illegal
Mungiki were extorting money from matatu operators and small business
traders in parts of Central and Rift Valley to finance the meeting.
He told a news conference that the meeting was also meant to install a
former sect leader as the political leader of Central region.
