“During the operation, crude weapons including machetes, clubs, swords, metal rods and pieces of wood were [seized] from the thugs, who have left Nakuru residents living in fear of being attacked,” said Nakuru County Directorate of Criminal Investigations boss Anthony Sunguti.  Adding, “Also recovered were assorted SIM cards and identification documents belonging to victims of robbery incidents.”
