12 Youths Busted For Attempting To Attack Bondo Police Station

Twelve youths are presently in police custody after they were arrested for attempting to attack Bondo Police Station during failed anti-government protests on Thursday.

According to Siaya County Police Commander Cleti Kimaiyo, youths started gathering in Bondo town at around 12pm and attempted to barricade the roads.

Mr. Kimaiyo noted that, at around 2pm, a small group of the protesters started to attack the station continuously by pelting it with stones.

He stated that this prompted an enhanced anti-riot team led by himself to respond and they managed to drive away the violent protesters completely out of the town.

Mr. Kimaiyo added that in the event, they managed to arrest the 12 suspects who were attacking the station with stones and other manner of projectiles.

The county police boss also said that the anti-riot team remained vigilant and continued to pacify the town and rid it of small pockets of violent protesters until 9.30pm when they called off the operation.

He noted that there were no injuries reported from either camps, adding that the youths will be arraigned in court on Friday.
