Breakthrough As Police Arrest Six Deadly Machete-wielding Thugs In Kenya Navy Uniforms

Police in Kwale have arrested six youths belonging to an organised criminal gang.

The machete-wielding thugs were nabbed at Kombani area on Monday night. The six, who were riding on motorcycles, were on their way to Diani when the police arrested them.

The thugs tried to run over a police checkpoint on the Likoni -Lungalunga highway before the police swung into action and got hold of them.

According to a police statement, the thugs were dressed in Kenya Navy uniforms and they were found in possession of two machetes.

The six were taken to a police cell awaiting arraignment.

The arrest comes in the wake of a series of arrests by police authorities in a bid to tame the spiking crime cases that had infested the area.

The marauding gangs are wreaking havoc in their thirst for money, mobile phones and laptops. Moving in pairs, the criminals mainly target pedestrians, and occasionally motorists. They strike and vanish in a flash, leaving victims either dead, seriously injured or badly shaken.
