Police concerned over resurgence of MRC

 By Chris Sambu 

Police in Kaloleni, Kilifi County, have raised concern over the resurgence of the Mombasa Republican Council following a raid at a training camp.

Kaloleni divisional police commander Kennedy Osando said they received information that there were about 60 youths who had converged inside kaya Jibana forest in Mulola.

Police challenged the youths to surrender but they defied the order forcing them to arrest two of the youths and an old man they believed was their witch doctor.

Osando appealed to the public to report any persons seeking treatment for gunshot wounds as some of the youths were likely shot in the process of fleeing arrest. The OCPD warned MRC operatives, their sympathizers and those harbouring them that they will be arrested and punished.
