“We have arrested 14 people in Homa Bay following Wednesday’s attack of two police officers and confiscation of a firearm, which was later destroyed by the youth. They will be charged in court,” Mr Njega told the Nation.

He said two suspects, who were arrested in Kisumu following Friday’s break in at Tumaini Supermarket have already been charged.

“They have been charged with robbery with violence for breaking into the supermarket,” added Mr Njega.
