INSECURITY

12/05/2014 Insecurity By Felix Gichane Insecurity has been a major concern for Kiambu residents for a long period in the recent times. This comes after a man was found dead under a tree near Kimbo town on Saturday morning. The gentleman who was in his mid 30s could not be identified at the moment and the cause of his death remains a mystery. However it is suspected that the man may have been killed elsewhere and his body deposited there at night. According to Mary Wangui who sells groceries at the area, they found the man lying there in the cold and after checking they found he was breathless. “I have never experienced this for the past 30 years I have stayed in this area and government should be vigilant about this”, added Wangui. They decided to inform the local administration after the people from the area failed to identify the corpse. The guy did not have an injury or any scar suggesting he had internal complications which were not identified at the moment. Ruiru sub-county took the body to city mortuary for postmortem and urged the public who may have lost a friend or relative to visit their office for confirmation. Addressing the media earlier Ruiru OCPD Isaac Thuranira assured the residents to remain calm and they were in pursuit with the culprit to make sure they are apprehended. “We are not going to sleep until those criminals are brought to book” He was speaking after two men were brutally murdered and another gravely injured by armed thugs at a residential home within Juja farm of Kiambu County. The attackers jumped the storey perimeter wall accessing the area killing the two instantly. The motive behind the attack has not yet been identified since they did not steal anything from the farm and only seemed their mission was to kill Eliud Kabiru who was the farm’s assistant manager and Stanley Kihara who was a contractor. Juja MP, Francis Waititu called for the reassignment of police officers from the area stating they had shown great laxity since they have been unable to curb the soaring crime rate in the region. The injured John Ndegwa was rushed to Thika Level 5 Hospital and is recuperating well according to his doctors. The government has employed all efforts to bring the rate of crime and insecurity down and the residents have an immense part to assist in bringing that dream to a reality
