The National Police Service on Thursday afternoon confirmed unknown assailants raided a house belonging to activist Boniface Mwangi where they accosted the workers on its construction site, robbing them before detonating three explosives in the building.
In a statement, the National Police said the house, located at Kinanie Location, was attacked by three unknown men in an unmarked white pickup.
”Three unknown men in a white pickup allegedly armed with pistols accosted the site workers, robbed them off personal effects and assaulted the building still under construction with detonators causing three holes,” the statement reads in part.
Earlier on Thursday morning, Mwangi took to social media to express his frustration towards the government, a move that prompted online reaction among many Kenyans.
“I’m not a criminal. I don’t do deals. I have never compromised my values. The State has blown up the house my family was building. The bullets, the explosives they used are on the scene. So, what kind of a country are we living in?” the activist posed.
