Kenyans have again today celebrated their festive season "Boxing Day" which comes after Christmas as they eagerly wait to usher in a new year, 2023. Many thronged into places of entertainment as others spent the entire day at their homes with their parents as they shared the little they had together.

However at Delta Petrol Station in Kawangware 46, Dagoretti Sub-county, Nairobi, Police had a rough day after arresting one of the suspected gangsters said to have been terrorizing the city dwellers for a while. The suspected gangster was busted by a team of city sleuths following a tip-off by the residents. Upon his seizure, the man led police to his place of stay where several homemade weapons and suspected stolen items were recovered i.e. pistol, Samsung tablet, and Nokia phone. Also recovered was a teargas grenade and machete. His accomplices are said to be on the run as police hurt them.

The suspect has since been placed in custody awaiting the wrath of the law to take its course.
