Kindiki: Criminal gangs terrorising ‘Eastlando’ residents hide in Tala

Intelligence reports say that some notorious criminal gangs terrorising Nairobi’s Eastlands, popularly known as Eastlando, area are using Tala township in Machakos County to plan their crimes and to debrief.

Interior Cabinet Secretary Prof. Kithure Kindiki says he has directed law enforcement agencies in Machakos County to reign on these criminal gangs.

Speaking during his visit in the area on Friday, March 22, CS Kindiki also directed the security agencies to roll back the rising cases of drug peddling, sale and consumption of narcotic drugs and shisha, and child pornography in the environs of Tala in Matungulu Sub-County.

Kindiki used his visit to Matungulu Sub-County to review law enforcement measures and strategies to flush out drug dealers, shisha consumers and sellers, and criminal gangs.

Countrywide, 4,800 alcoholic outlets operating within the prohibited proximity to basic learning institutions have been closed and licenses revoked.

Over 9,500 unlicensed alcoholic drinks selling premises have been shut and 12 distilleries of toxic brews destroyed to disable further production.

“All licenses of manufacturers and distillers of second generation alcoholic drinks remain suspended and production prohibited until the completion of ongoing security and compliance vetting is concluded by end of this month,” Kindiki said.
