“That is the only way we make money. We have to attack people so that we can eke out for ourselves,” Salim told the Sunday Nation.
Again, he added that they usually meet with his gang members at their hideout in Majengo Mapya in Likoni where they plan attacks.

Sometimes we split into smaller groups before initiating an attack to the innocent citizens who we already planned of. We never want to injure the victims but sometimes circumstances force us to do so. For example, if they try to resist being robbed or when they fight us back,” he added.
