Nairobi’s shadowy crime buster Hessy Wa Dandora is not a happy person after Facebook pulled down his Nairobi Crime Free page.

Hessy Wa Dandora used to issuing death warnings to criminals through the Facebook page. He will later take credit for shooting dead criminals and posting their bloody pictures on the page.

Facebook’s decision to delete the page comes days after BBC featured a story, ‘How Facebook is being used to profile and kill Kenyan ‘gangsters’

“A suspected death squad operating inside Kenya’s police force is using Facebook to target and kill young men they believe to be gang members, residents of a poor and overcrowded area of the capital have told a public meeting,” read part of the article.

Hessy wa Dandora, using different Facebook accounts, stated how his deleted Facebook page had been instrumental in neutralizing the deadly Gaza Gang that terrorised Eastlands Residents.

“I personally do this coz I have the passion of fighting violent crimes within Nairobi and its neighborhood. No one has ever refunded me all this money and no one will ever do it,” he stated over the weekend.

Former police chief Joseph Boinnet denied any association with Hessy wa Dandora.

“The person behind the Facebook accounts is not a police officer, but a civilian passionate about security matters,” said Boinnet.
