Fear grips res­i­dents af­ter farmer stum­bles on bomb

Daily Nation (Kenya) - - COUNTY -

Res­i­dents of Ki­mandi were gripped by fear when a bomb was found in the vil­lage in Kirinyaga County. Mr Ndegwa Ci­uri on Wed­nes­day evening stum­bled upon the ex­plo­sive, be­lieved to have been planted by un­known crim­i­nals, on his farm. He alerted a neighbour, a for­mer sol­dier, who ex­am­ined the ob­ject and con­cluded that it was a bomb. The ex-sol­dier ad­vised Mr Ci­uri not to touch it. As the news spread, res­i­dents rushed to the scene but later scam­pered for safety. Mr Ci­uri re­ported the mat­ter to as­sis­tant chief Kabui Ga­timu, who then alerted the po­lice. Bal­lis­tics ex­perts even­tu­ally det­o­nated the bomb.
