Tension High In Kiamaiko As Two Rival Groups Clash, Five People Injured
Chaos have erupted in Kiamaiko area in Mathare Constituency after two rival criminal gangs clashed.
The two rival groups barricaded stones and pelted one another with stones.
The clashes reportedly started yesterday evening after five people who are members of one gang were stabbed.
The five were stabbed by the rival gang which was on a revenge mission after one of their members was stabbed on Sunday.
“There are two criminal gangs here. These two gangs have been stabbing each other over their own rivalry. The stabbing cases have apparently been happening since last month,” says Njoki Nwangi a resident of Kiamaiko.
According to Njoki the rivalry among the two criminal gangs has been playing out in the presence of police who are allegedly taking no action.
“Police are busy arresting people without masks and our young sons are killing each other under their watch. We need action taken,” said Mwangi.
Police were forced to lobe teargas to quell the chaos.
