Terrorism

 

The man behind the re-arrest of the three prison breakers

The man who led fellow villagers in Mwingi, Kitui County, to capture the three terror convicts who escaped from Kamiti Maximum Prison has finally spoken out about the incident and how the successful acted to strain the victims.

Paul Mulati, speaking to royal media upon the capture on Thursday, said the three were spotted at Endau Malalani ward, saying they were unaware of the mode of transport they used to reach the area.He stated that himself alongside other villagers initially identified the escapees by their movements, which he said clearly indicated that they were new to the area.

According to Mulati, the trio was moving in a zig zag formation beside the road and closer to the bushes, occasionally crossing to the other side whenever they hit a dead end.“Walikuwa na ujanja ingine kwa sababu walikuwa wanaenda zig zag…mara wanavuka barabara wanaenda pande hii…wanatembea kwa msitu, wakiona hiyo msitu imeshikana sana wanaruka tena wanaenda pande hiyo ingine ya barabara,” he stated .

“Wanatembea kando ya msitu lakini hawaachi barabara mbali ndio wasipotee…hawajui, ni wageni…hawa watu wamejulikana wakati wameingia Endau Malalani ward, sasa hatujui walifika aje Endau…hatujui walibebwa na gari ama walikuja namna gani.”Mulati further added that they managed to pursue the suspects and capture them with no fear as they were aware that the trio was not armed.

“Sisi kama wananchi wazalendo wa nchi ya Kenya, tumefanya juu chini mpaka tukawakamata, hatukuwa tunaogopa…ile kitu tulikuwa tunaogopa zaidi ni vita kutoka nje, si hao, kwa sababu wakati walitoroka tuliona hawana silaha,” he stated.

Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai earlier on said the escapees were captured deep in a forest and are suspected to have been headed to Garissa, then eventually Somalia and join their team alishabab.

The three terror convicts, who have been on the run after escaping on Monday, were captured in Mwingi, near the border of Kitui and Tana River counties after a massive manhunt headed by the brave village man.
