Residents of Murang'a County are reportedly living in fear following the emergence of a dangerous criminal Syndicate that has been causing residents sleepless nights in several parts of the county. 

The gang is reported to have been Robbing residents and demanding tax from those using Kandara constituency amenities. The gang is made of about 10 men who have carrying machetes and knives. 

Several people have been killed and houses burnt by the gang with the police doing very little to help the situation. A fortnight ago, a 28-year-old man was Brutally Murdered After he refused to give out the token that the gang wanted. 

According to a report by Citizen FM, the police are aware of the group but have not done anything so far as residents continue to live in fear. The group is said to be also targeting wives of prominent businessmen in a bid to solicit funds from their husbands or harm the wife. There are fears that the group could be metamorphosizing into a Mungiki-like group that is remembered for terrorizing residents in the Mt Kenya Region especially a few months to the electioneering period.
