Police have gunned down the new leader of the Katombi gang.
The police killed Jakande Kabede alias Kababa two weeks after they also gunned down Fadhili Mgaza in Nairobi last month.
“Barely two weeks after the newly installed leader of the infamous Katombi gang was gunned down, the outfit was dealt the final blow Tuesday night after Fadhili Mgaza’s successor died in a hail of gunfire,” the police said.
The police said that the gang had changed its name to Yeyoye and was terrorising people in love by robbing valuables.
“In a bid to camouflage from our hawk-eyed sleuths, the notorious outfit that has suffered heavy casualties in recent days had rebranded to ‘Yeyoye’ gang and promoted one thug only known as Jakande Kabede alias Kababa as its de facto leader.”
The new leader was gunned down last night alongside another accomplice after started robbing innocent civilians at Bondeni in Mathare at gunpoint.
“Pangani-based sleuths who received a tip-off on the thugs’ activities rushed to the scene, on time to find the two who had cornered a middle-aged woman and were busy ransacking her handbag,” the police said.
The Corporal leading the operation ordered the two to surrender, but instead one of the thugs fired at him missing his left shoulder by inches. What followed was a fierce exchange of fire, as the detectives responded to the thugs’ provocation with precision.
“When the guns went silent, Kababa who had concealed his identity using a balaclava lay motionless on the ground, as his accomplice the only surviving member of the gang staged a narrow escape deep into the settlement’s dark alleys. One Webley revolver with four rounds of ammunition was recovered from the thug,” the police said.
Tuesday’s operation annihilated one of the city’s notorious criminal gangs, that had terrorized residents of Mathare, Pangani and Huruma estates.
As detectives work round the clock to rid the city of criminals and criminal gangs, members of the public are urged to continue partnering with police for their safety and security.
