DCI Hunt Gang In New Nakuru City

Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) in Nakuru are hunting down two separate gangs that have become the nightmare of residents in the Bondeni and Kiamaina areas of the newly-conferred city.

In one of the incidents at Kiamaina early morning on Friday, December 3, a 49-year-old man was violently robbed at his home’s gate when a gun-toting gang accosted him after parking his car.

The unknown number of assailants waylaid the victim as he locked the gate, inflicting multiple cuts on his arms, knees and back, before escaping with Ksh100,000 cash and a Samsung phone worth Ksh60,000.

“The attackers had then fired two rounds to scare off responders as they bolted out of the scene, leaving the victim at the mercy of emergency medical aid. Luckily, a swift response by Kiugoine police and neighbours saved the victim’s life as he is recuperating at a Nakuru hospital in stable condition,” the DCI stated in part.

Elsewhere in Bondeni, a bodaboda operator and his pillion passenger were at 6.30am on Saturday, December 4 attacked by a three-man gang, as the rider rushed his ailing customer to a medical facility.

“Oblivious of the three hoodlums lurking in dark covers, the rider set his wheels in their ambush, where they were both subjected to a merciless beating after the gang found no much to rob them off.

“The already ailing 19-year-old male customer further suffered several stabs on his head and hands, as the rider slid away raising alarm,” the sleuths narrated.

The attackers escaped before a furious mob could pounce on them, but one -a notorious mugger known by his alias name “Chile”- was identified among them.

As the badly injured victim receives treatment at a Nakuru City hospital, Bondeni police have intensified pursuit of the gang.

Both incidents came after President Uhuru Kenyatta conferred Nakuru to a city, joining the list of Kenya’s cities with Nairobi, Mombasa and Kisumu also featured.

“Nakuru City will join Kisumu, Mombasa and Nairobi as cities. With a reputation as East Africa’s cleanest town, all of Kenya looks forward to Nakuru City growing by leaps and bounds,” Uhuru said in his State of the Nation Address in Nairobi on Tuesday, November 30.
