Mombasa County Nominated Senator Miraj Abdullahi now wants the community to pinpoint all crime suspects in the community.

This is aimed at addressing the challenge of insecurity in some parts of the county.

“The community should mention all these youth suspected of having committed a criminal offense,’’ noted the vocal senator.

Miraj says the move will also ensure that those suspected of committing crimes are apprehended.

She further noted that the move will ensure that suspects are molded into becoming useful members of the community.

 “How do you feel if one of your family members is lynched by a ruthless mob? Whatever happened in Junda is pathetic,’’ she said.

Miraj urged the community to devise a proper mechanism to combat criminals.

Her sentiments come days after three suspects were lynched by a mob in Junda ward, Kisauni sub-county.

In a separate incident in Bilima area within Kisauni, two suspected criminals were killed on Wednesday morning after allegedly attacking a resident with a machete.
