KWALE Police in Msambweni subcounty have arrested 77 suspected criminals during operation 'Fagia Diani and Ukunda'. Msambweni subcounty police boss Joseph Omijah said the operation, launched on Tuesday, is aimed at ridding the town of criminals.

Addressing journalists in Lunga Lunga on Thursday, Omojah said those arrested will face charges of drug abuse and loitering. He said security officials will work closely with all stakeholders to ensure the town is safe and secure. Omijah said they are taking precautions after attackers killed worshippers in a Likoni church.
