Another 60MM Rocket-Propelled Grenade Discovered In Kiambu

Another grenade was found yesterday in Ndeiya, Kiambu County, a few weeks after a similar one was found in the same area.

It was found by a quarry worker in the Boma area, after he stepped over a metal object.The man ran into the village and reported to the locals and area's sub-chief, James Mwaura.

Mwaura visited the scene and identified the device as a grenade, similar to another one that was discovered in the area on April 27 this year.

Mwaura then informed his superiors who alerted the bomb disposal unit at the Criminal Investigation Directorate, which carefully detonated the 60mm rocket-propelled grenade left behind during the colonial era and later detonated it.

Locals have then be urged to be much careful when they come across such materials and inform the authorities because they can explode and cause death.
