3 suspects arrested over motorist attacks along Southern Bypass

Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) have yesterday arrested three suspects as they prepared to stage attacks against motorists along the southern bypass.

Brian Mwangi and Nickson Muchiri, aged 25, were armed with machetes as police caught up and arrested them.

The Langata based Police Officers arrested a third suspect aged 15, as he fled to the nearby Ngong forest, in a bid to evade arrest.

Two motorbikes used by the criminals as their getaway means were also impounded.

Last week, six other suspects were pushed out of the forest in a similar operation, after they attacked a motorist and his 3-year-old son at the bypass.

There has been a spate of attacks that have been staged against motorists, along the busy highway.

The suspects will be arraigned in court today to answer to charges of preparing to commit a felony, contrary to section 308 (1) of the penal code.

Motorists have been attacked on the Ngong Road- Mombasa Road stretch, especially at night. Some of the attackers blocked the highway with large rocks.
