It is a sad and cold day in the Central province of Kenya. Over 27 young men were hacked to death last night allegedly by members of an outlawed sect called Mungiki.
The group seems to be on a revenge mission after last week’s killings of its followers by members of the community tired of its merciless extortion.
Mungiki is associated with any form of evil and every time it hits, the society is left bleeding, shaken, and haunted by the shocking pictures of dismembered bodies of those who fall victim to the sect’s merciless killings.
Thousands in Nyeri East in central province have been thrown into mourning as the police moves in to curb the violence.
It is such a sad state when people from the same community rise against each other. In 2007, the government launched a serious crack down against the sect which has since stood firm and has not relented in its enormous extortion which its also known of. The Kikuyu community from which the sect hails from is now fed up with its ruthless behavior hence the clash that has now killed over 50 youths.
