More than 300 women invaded Masimba town in Kajiado yesterday in search of “husband snatchers” and illicit brews.
Most women waiters kept away for fear of being attacked.
AP officer CPL Ng’ang’a, in charge of the Masimba camp, was hit by a blunt object on the head.
Witnesses said Ng’ang’a confronted the women and fired in the air to scare them away but was overpowered.
The group then confronted a woman, whose name was only given as Mama Wayua, and beat her unconscious before pouring out the 10 drums of chang’aa in her den.
