Recently, the Mungiki name has been on the rise, with several people characterising the organisation as a cult or militia group set to cause havoc within the country. The Mungiki has been associated with youth who are in dreadlocks, and having some weird religion and that their main purpose is causing havoc in the country. However, in a recent statement by several Kenyan youth, the Gikuyu youth distanced themselves from the Mungiki brand, explaining that having dreadlocks does not automatically categorize someone as a Mungiki sect member, and that the age of Mungiki is over.
This comes as time steadily decreases as the nation approaches the general elections in August next year, thus causing political tension among many in the country.
It is a prayer in many households that the election process will be free and fair, and that no chaos will arise from electoral results presented in 2022. This is because of the dreadful 2007 civil strife in Kenya.
