Mungiki-style attacks on women seem to be emerging in Kitengela. At the weekend, a young woman was undressed by touts claiming she was dressed indecently and then frog matched around the town before they paid a boda-boda to take her back home so she can "dress appropriately".

The incident took place less than 5 days after a group of mechanics did the same to another woman claiming to  "teach her a lesson having endured her nudity for too long".

In both incidents, members of the public could be heard shouting that it is time to teach lessons to women who dress like prostitutes. Speaking to the Star, women called on police to increase their patrols in the town following these attacks.
