Kenya: Youths chanting 'Allahu Akbar' kill four, injure others in Kisauni night of terror

Four people were killed and several others injured on Monday night night as marauding youths armed with knives, machetes and crude weapons attacked residents in Kisauni, Mombasa County.


The youths, aged between 15 and 25 years and who were shouting religious chants, indiscriminately attacked passers-by and motorists, causing havoc along the Old Malindi road towards Bamburi.

By Monday night, there were three bodies of the Kisauni chaos' victims at the Coast Provincial General Hospital.

Forty-two year old Joshua Muteti was hacked to death while at the Mtopanga Post Office stage where he had gone to see off friends who had earlier visited his home.

A group of about 12 hooded young men attacked him as his wife and three other visitors scampered for safety.

“They slashed my brother several times on the left arm and head as his wife watched from a close distance. He bled and died on the spot as the gang advanced to other areas,” Mr Abuba
