Three suspects armed with machetes, were arrested yesterday as they prepared to stage attacks against motorists along the southern bypass.

Brian Mwangi and Nickson Muchiri aged 25, were arrested following a well executed operation, mounted by Langata based Police Officers. A third suspect aged 15, was also arrested as he fled to the nearby Ngong forest, in a bid to evade arrest.

Two motorbikes used by the criminals as their getaway means were also impounded, in the meticulous operation staged by the officers. Their arrest follows a spate of attacks that have been staged 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 3-year-old son.The suspects will be arraigned in court today to answer to charges of preparing to commit a felony, contrary to section 308 (1) of the penal code.
