A gang that has rocked several parts of Mombasa takes to stripping women and sucking their breasts when cash and other valuables are unavailable, a group has complained.
Kisauni residents who spoke to the Star said the gang hijacks matatus during the day and at night.
“They walk in groups of about 10-15 members, wielding knives and pangas,” one said.
She was among women from six constituencies who held a press conference on Thursday and gave the government seven days to arrest the thugs.
“Arrest the culprits or we will take to the streets,” said Topista Juma, an officer in charge of gender and children at Muslim for Human Rights commission.
Coast regional coordinator Nelson Marwa directed police to arrest the Wakali Kwanza gang that has been accused of stripping women.
Marwa said the gang was behind the crime that takes place in areas including Kisauni and Soko Mjinga.
He said a multi-agency team will carry out the operation.
