Dandora residents have taken to the streets to protest over the rising insecurity in the area following the killing of two people and wounding of one man by three armed thugs.
Police have engaged the residents in running battles as they attempt to restore calm to the area. This latest incident comes barely a day after such protest were also experienced in Kariobangi and Mathare areas.
In Kariobangi, residents staged a five-hour demo during which they barricaded Juja and Outer Ring roads with stones and bonfires to protest the shooting of businessman Khadiro alisa Hussein on Saturday.
A witness says Khadiro was attacked by a gang of five men as he was going to collect his motorcycle from Arahman mosque in Kiamaiko village. Khadiro was rushed to Kenyatta National Hospital for treatment.
In Mathare's 3C area, skirmishes erupted as a group went on the rampage burning 30 homes after another group stabbed one of their members to death.
This prompted the other group to attack in retaliation. Starehe OCPD Samuel Anampiu said police arrested 38 suspects in a swoop.
Anampiu said that those arrested were known criminals who police had been looking for. He further added that the two groups are rival gangs that have been operating in the area. Police are patrolling the area to prevent further skirmishes.
