Bomb in   Murang’a   baffles the  DCI

An 84mm mortar bomb discovered by a farmhand in Kigumo Murang’a county has been taken into custody by detectives from the Forensic Bomb Disposal and Hazardous Materials Unit.

Ngonda village came to a halt when the device was discovered, with bemused residents milling about the thing, some believing it was a missile and others claiming it was an overgrown arrowroot.
The neighbors were so anxious that two children were sent to the homestead of a retired military officer about a kilometer distant to investigate after calls to his phone went unanswered. Minutes later, police arrived and determined the object was an 84mm mortar bomb.
The deadly military ordnance was most likely left behind by British forces during the Mau Mau insurrection in 1953 when the aerial bombardment was used to flush out Mau Mau militants in areas of Mt Kenya and the Aberdare woods. The bomb will be detonated today by DCI Bomb specialists.
