Investments, Trade & Industry Cabinet Secretary(CS) Moses Kuria has pledged a swift revenge following the destruction of property witnessed on Tuesday, May 2, 2023, as anti-governmental protests by Azimio kicked off.

Kuria was speaking in response to reports of a Public Service Vehicle(PSV) that was set on fire by goons along Ngong road.

He says this will be the last time such occurrences are experienced in the country.

"Revenge will be swift and in corresponding measure. This will be the last. I solemnly promise," CS Kuria tweeted.

After the incident, police were forced to lob teargas to disperse the crowd and restore calm in the area.

According to the locals, the goons are suspected to have travelled from other places before the attack.

They said they arrived in small groups before throwing petrol bombs they had onto the bus. The driver was unable to turn and escape.

Elsewhere, a trailer was also torched along the Lang'ata bypass adjacent to the Migingo slum in Lang’ata, Nairobi.

The truck was headed to Uganda.

The two incidents have however raised speculations on social media with netizens questioning the culprits behind the attacks.

While some say the goons were among protestors, others remain adamant that the two incidents were staged.
