Police arrest 3 over attack at Mwea settlement scheme row

Police are holding three men in connection with the bloody attack on a retired district commissioner and three others on Friday at the Mwea Settlement Scheme in Embu County.

The three are suspected to be among a group of youth who slashed the former administrator, Ireri Ndong’ong’i and three other elderly men.

Mr Ndong’ong’i was among the beneficiaries who received title deeds for the 44,000-acre land situated in Makima Ward, Mbeere South sub-County.

However, as he reached Mwanjo village about two kilometres from Makima market, he was attacked by a group of people armed with machetes and clubs, leaving him unconscious.

Mr Ndong’ong’i suffered deep cuts on his head, chest and abdomen and was rescued by a group of journalists who had gone to check on the situation after beneficiaries were allowed to visit the vast land.

Mbeere South police boss, Ahmed Mohammed said the attackers also set on fire Mr Ndong’ong’i’s vehicle.
