A fifteen-year-old is among the three suspects who were yesterday arrested on suspicion of preparing to stage attacks against motorists along the Southern Bypass.
Lang’ata-based police say that Brian Mwangi and Nickson Muchiri, both aged 25, together with the teenager were armed with machetes upon their arrest.
The officers also impounded two motorbikes believed to be the suspected criminals’ getaway means.
“A third suspect aged 15, was also arrested as he fled to the nearby Ngong forest, in a bid to evade arrest,” DCI added.

There has been a spate of attacks against motorists along the busy highway. Last week, six other suspects were flushed out of the forest in a similar operation after they attacked a motorist and his three-year-old son.
The suspects will be arraigned in court today (Monday). DCI says they will be charged with “preparing to commit a felony, contrary to section 308 (1) of the penal code.”
