Police officers in Nakuru have launched a crackdown on members of a notorious gang.
The crackdown comes amid rising cases of gang violence in parts of Nakuru town East and West constituencies.
On Wednesday, the officers conducted a sting operation ‘code-named confirm’ that saw some 13 suspected members of the gang arrested.
The operation also saw the recovery of a cache of weapons, mobile phones and sim cards from different telecommunication companies.
Acting on a tip-off from the members of the public, the police led by Officer in Charge of Operations Wilson Nduati stormed one of the houses belonging to a suspect in the Lakeview estate.
He said the suspects appeared to have been plotting a criminal activity and might have been involved in swindling Kenyans money using mobile cash transfers.
