    The Mungiki sect was banned in 2002 and have been blamed for the deaths of more than 40 people since March.

    The government crackdown has left at least 76 Mungiki members dead and seen more than 3,000 arrests throughout Kenya.

    The latest violence has set off a debate, with critics accusing politicians of exploiting the country’s jobless youth to spark unrest ahead of presidential elections at the end of the year.
