Breakthrough as Police arrest Murang’a Most Wanted Criminal who claims bullets could not harm him

A man who prided himself as Murang’a’s Kinjeketile Ngwale, running from one criminal escapade to another for the past six years, has run out of luck and has been jailed for two years without the option of a fine.

Peter Ndung’u Kamau alias Kinjeketile has been on the police’s most wanted list of illicit brew traders, narcotics sellers and instigators of violent attacks in Maragua town and its environs.

Police say that he was reputed to have been visiting a medicine man from Githuya village who ‘treats’ criminals in the name of giving them immunity against arrests, bullets and lynch mobs.

"The said male medicine man cuts his clients on various parts of their bodies and smears them with portions that are sold as a perfect guard against ill luck during criminal escapades," Murang'a South Sub-County Police Commander Alexander Shikondi said.

Kamau hails from Maica Ma Thi village in Ichagaki Location, a village that has known chang’aa trade since 1961.

However, he was arrested and arraigned at the Kigumo courthouse on Monday. Appearing before Senior Resident Magistrate Shivai Agade, he was charged with the offence of manufacturing and trading in chang’aa.
