Don't give Mungiki space

By Editorial | November 2nd 2021

The resurgence of outlawed Mungiki group in Murang’a a few months to the next general election is worrying. Before it was defeated by then Minister for Security John Michuki, the group was notorious for extortion, bloodletting and disdain for the rule of law. Having resurfaced, there is danger that the group could be used by unscrupulous politicians to intimidate rivals and voters.

No doubt, these people live among us. Members of the public must therefore play an active role in taming Mungiki by reporting them to the police. In turn, the law enforcers should not only act on intelligence given to them, they should conceal the identities of informers. For the police, winning public trust is critical to the success of the fight against criminal gangs.
