Mombasa - Two people were last night killed at the Msambweni Shopping Centre in Kwale after armed men raided the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) offices, police have said.
In a statement to Daily Nation, the area OCPD Richard Mugwai said that the office was raided by about six men and they killed two people, ransacked offices and stole laptops, before proceeding to the neighbouring Yehu Microfinance premises, where they stole laptops too.
The IEBC Coast Regional Coordinator Ms Amina Soud said the attack was a wake-up call to the government since MRC is opposed to the general election being held in the region, although authorities could not immediately confirm that they were the ones behind the incidents.
