Police on Tuesday evening arrested 15 morans alleged to have camped at Kibini factory, a property of East African Portland Cement Company, in Sultan Hamud.

Nominated MCA Yvonne Tonkei leaked the arrest tomedia in Kajiado.

A senior police source, who sought anonymity, said they carried the operation at the Kibini plant and arrested the suspects who had unlawfully camped there.

“Acting on information leaked to the police, our officers raided the factory and flushed out 15 suspects who have been camping at the government facility and slaughtering goats,” said the senior officer.

The senior officer claimed the suspects arrested had allegedly camped at the factory in a bid to force its top managers to leave the facility over a standoff between the company and former retrenched workers seeking pay.

“What we have done is to flush them out of the government facility and arresting them for bridging the law. They forcefully went into the factory where they have been feasting on goats provided by the local community,” said the police officer.

He said several pieces of meat the morans were feasting on were also collected and taken away as an exhibit.

Nominated MCA Yvonne Tonkei said those arrested were brutally beaten up by police in Kibini and later taken to Mashuuru police station.

Tonkei claimed members of public stormed Mashuuru police station after the arrest with intent to secure them but officers acted fast and transferred the suspects to Kajiado police station.
