The governor stormed Mashuuru Police Station in the Thursday incident and released the suspects who are matatu operators.

Governor Ole Lenku is said to have engaged the County Police Commander Beatrice Gachago and Kajiado County Commissioner Joshua Nkatha to release the 10 individuals, but they could not come to an agreement.

According to the police, the 10 were charged with robbing a trader by the name John Musyoki Sh17, 800.

The reports further said that the matatu operators were arrested on May 13, and had secured their release through a lawyer, but could not be let go until they paid a fine of Sh115, 000.

The suspects are alleged to have attacked a colleague who was charging Sh500 for fare, against the set amount of Sh700.
