Po­lice are look­ing for Mom­basa Repub­li­can Coun­cil chair­man Omar Mwamnu­adzi, who is be­lieved to have fled to Tan­za­nia.

The MRC chair­man al­legedly moved with his new wife Riziki Zawadi.

A se­nior po­lice of­fi­cer said Kenyan po­lice have cir­cu­lated a re­port on his where­abouts in Tan­za­nia and are work­ing closely with their Tan­za­nia coun­ter­parts to ar­rest Mwamnu­adzi.

Mwamnu­adzi is be­lieved to be ex­tend­ing the group’s ac­tiv­i­ties in Tan­za­nia. “Our of­fi­cers have al­ready moved into Tan­za­nia and we are in­ves­ti­gat­ing his hide­outs to ar­rest him,” the of­fi­cer said.

An in­tel­li­gence re­port says Mwamnu­adzi sneaked out of Kenya two months ago af­ter mar­ry­ing Zawadi, a Tan­za­nian. The re­port urges po­lice to be on the look­out for him as he is sus­pected to have gone for mili­tia train­ing in Tan­za­nia.

The re­port fur­ther says Mwamnu­adzi is a threat to na­tional se­cu­rity and any­one who sees him should re­port to the po­lice. He is also be­ing sought by a Mom­basa court af­ter he jumped bail in a case in which he is charged with be­ing a mem­ber of MRC.

This comes shortly af­ter MRC spokesman Richard Lewa said they will be recruiting mem­bers in the six coun­ties at the Coast.
