Mungiki-- the video

Members of the Mungiki sect were back in the public arena again last week. As is often the case, their encounter with the public was not a pleasant one.

In the most recent news, the group has been in the spotlight for run-ins with other tribe based gangs, with matatu touts and with the Kenya Police. Comprising hundreds, some say up to two million youths from the Mount Kenya region, the movement claims to be against the western slant of Kenyan society. It seeks its inspiration from traditional religion and the ways of the Agikuyu ancestors.

kenyaImagine's editorial team has acquired a video showing the terror this gang has brought to wananchi. (allow time for the video to buffer)
