More than 10 people have been injured following a night attack by goons allegedly sent by a land grabber to evict them from a community land in Mlango Kubwa, Mathare Constituency.
The residents claim that the goons ambushed them in their houses at around 1 am destroyed their houses and even stole property.
Speaking to Ghetto Radio, they claim that the goons who are allegedly foreigners were sent to evict them from the community land by a notorious land grabber who is a Redeemed Gospel Church pastor.
“The pastor first sent goons to fence this land, and these people attacked residents with pangas, broke into our houses, destroyed them and even stole property,” said a resident.
“We know the pastor, he is a known land grabber, he first grabbed a piece of land in Huruma and now he is here trying to grab this land. We will not allow him,” she stated.
Bill Eugene Omollo a resident says that the destruction of property was not necessary.
According to Omollo the goons even tried to kill some four young men who had to lock themselves up in a house to keep themselves safe.
“He brought goons at night who threatened us with pangas. There are four young men who had to lock themselves in a house otherwise they would have been killed,” says Omollo.
The injured have been rushed to the hospital.
