A group of 30 youths, suspected of being a criminal gang known as ‘Wakali Kwanza’, wounded several individuals on Monday night during an assault. These events took place when Mombasa County Governor is currently out of the country.

“BAMBURI ATTACKS – PRESS STATEMENT I am extremely perturbed by yesterday’s wave of attacks in Bamburi and Mtopanga within Kisauni Sub-county. I urge security agents to move with speed and bring to book perpetrators of last night’s attacks on innocent civilians…As Govt, it’s our duty to ensure protection of people’s lives & property. I am asking members of the public to volunteer information that will lead to the arrest of gangs that have been terrorizing people. We need to get to the bottom of the matter & address it once and for all.” Hassan Joho.

Kenyans have on social media attacked Joho for enjoying life while the residents of Bamburi were being attacked.
