Police Uncovers a Very Dangerous Criminal Gang Known as Machete Welders, Read the Weapons Recovered

Kwale Police Commander Josephat Kinyua said the young men were seized while riding on motorcycles on their way to Diani. They were arrested in Kombani area on Monday night.

"They were in Kenya Navy uniforms. It was like a group of well trained army," Mr Kinyua said.

Mr Kinyua said the suspects were trying to run over a police checkpoint on the Likoni -Lungalunga highway. But police got hold of them before they escaped.

The arrest follows increased concerns by residents and religious leaders over insecurity in areas around Matuga and Msambweni. Mr Kinyua said police have increased patrol across the country.

"We recently arrested suspects who conducted a robbery on a Tuktuk and also recovered a panga. This indicates that more of these people are hiding but we promise the very hard times. The criminals should be warned," he said

He said more police are working under proactive measures to curb crime countrywide.
