Who is protecting thugs in a county that neighbor Nairobi? That’s the question police officers are asking after three suspects; two men and a woman in their twenties were released in unclear circumstances. The three youngsters were arrested last month following an alarm raised by members of the public when they attempted to kidnap a businesswoman at the county headquarters. When police searched their vehicle, they discovered a cache of arms that included three magazines of ammunition and a scorpion firearm. The three were then detained at the local police station, also nabbed was their top of the range vehicle, a V8 that is black in colour.

However a phone call from a senior DCI officer from the region secured their release on a cash bail of Sh30,000 each after the youngster allegedly called their father, a tycoon who was then in Mombasa to intervene. Three weeks later, the suspects are yet to be charged in court and the vehicle is said to have been released. The complainant is now living in perpetual fear.
