One killed, several injured as Majengo youth in Mombasa avenge killing of murder suspect Guti

One person was killed and three others seriously injured after they were stabbed by angry Majengo youth who went on the rampage to avenge the killing of Hassan Guti on Saturday.

Guti, who is said to be the leader of a gang in the notorious Majengo neighbourhood, was shot dead near Saphire hotel along the Mwembe Tayari Road in Mombasa on Saturday afternoon.

Chaos broke out after the stone-throwing youth attacked motorists and pedestrian after they buried Guti at Kikowani cemetery.

A team of General Service Unit personnel dispersed the youth who attempted to barricade Jomo Kenyatta Avenue, in an operation led by Mombasa police boss Geoffrey Mayek.

Tension remains high in Majengo after Guti’s followers vowed to further avenge his death.
