The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) has cautioned members of the public living in the Witeithie area of Juja, Kiambu County, central Kenya, of a roaming Cackle of Hyenas that is already causing deadly attacks on the residents.
Whereas a multi-agency team of security personnel drawn from the National Police Service, Kenya Wildlife Service, and other local law enforcement agencies has been dispatched to handle the dangerous predators and prevent further attacks on people, we urge locals to remain cautious.
This caution follows a sad incident reported to police at 5 am today of a 29-year-old man who was mauled to death by the cackle of about 20 hyenas within the Kamuthi area on his way home from Komu quarry.
The victim's counterpart narrowly escaped by the skin of his teeth.
“We continually wish you safety and happy moments over the entire festive season, as we pledge our commitment to serving with Dedication, Care and Integrity,” said the DCI.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
