Why did the police not shoot-to-kill the Mungiki in Naivasha? Because the men in charge of the security agents are funding the goons to sustain the illegal regime of Mwizi Kibaki.
There have been further ethnic clashes in the town of Naivasha in western Kenya - a popular tourist venue, famous for its spectacular lake.
Mobs of Kikuyu men squared up against residents from the rival Luo ethnic group.
Whenever they spotted a Luo person, like this woman trying to flee with her meagre possessions, they intervened.
Women were jostled and jeered by the mob, some of whom were armed with machetes. The crowd only moved back when police fired warning shots.
Frightened Luo residents took refuge at the local police station, seeking protection and news of loved ones not accounted for.
Just a handful of police were on hand to escort those trying to leave.
The Luos clambered onto a bus under the gaze of the Kikuyus further down the street.
The bus carrying the frightened Luo residents to safety was supplied by the prisons department.
A man takes a last look at his home through the barred window of the prison bus.
