A 29-year-old man was mauled to death by a pack of at least 20 hyenas as he was heading home from the Ndarugo quarries in Juja.

The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) has warned residents of Witeithie against the man-eating hyenas roaming around the area.

According to a police report, the victim’s friend escaped this deadly ordeal by leaving his jacket behind and he was gone, running for his dear life.

The National Police Service (NPS), the Kenya Wildlife service (KWS) and other law enforcement agencies have come together to create a multi-agency team that have been deployed to control this threat.
