Ndunga noted the illegal group has embarked on extorting money from business people and recruiting new members.
The DC said: “Some fellows are attempting to resurrect it but the Government will crack down and wipe them out.”
The affected areas, he said, are Karia, Ikinu and various bus stops along Kiambu-Githunguri road.
Ndunga said they have intelligence reports that the youth have support from political leaders and are reorganising themselves ahead of the General Election.
He urged matatu operators not to give the criminals room to expand by allowing them to hide in their midst.
Speaking at a public function in Githunguri town at the weekend, Ndunga warned that no matatu operator will be allowed to work without badges and licences.
“You find youth at the main bus termini and when matatus stop, they negotiate with the conductors and money changes hands but the matatu players have remained quiet for fear of reprisals,” he added.
Recently, matatu operations were paralysed in Gatundu following the murder of two matatu Sacco officials.
The two were abducted and their mutilated bodies recovered weeks later, and matatu operators blamed the murders on the outlawed gang, raising fears of its return.
