Man Killed As Mungiki Clash

East African Standard/June 30, 2002

A man was killed during a bloody clash between two rival groups of the controversial Mungiki sect at Thika's Kiandutu slums yesterday.

Another Mungiki adherent was critically injured while dozens others escaped with slight injuries as the unprecedented battle spilled over to the neighbouring Pilot estate and the Jua Kali area.

Police said trouble began when some members of the sect living in the sprawling slums which has now been declared "Mungik land" armed themselves with swords and machetes to flush out some of their colleagues who have allegedly turned into robbers.

The other camp, however, ganged up to counter the attack, resulting in a bloody clash.
