National Security Minister, Dr Chris Murungaru, yesterday said the Mungiki sect does not exist.
Murungaru said the Government has wiped out the sect and those responsible for the Kayole terror were "common criminals."
"We have dealt with Mungiki. They are over and dealt with. The terrorists in Kayole are organised criminals using the name of Mungiki to spread fear and terror among Kenyans," said Murungaru.
He was speaking after opening the Public Service Integrity Implementation Programme. He was flanked by Internal Security Permanent Secretary, Mr Dave Mwangi.
Murungaru termed those responsible for the Kayole terror as extortionists who are resisting Government move to instil sanity in the matatu industry.
"This is organised crime. They are normal criminals who are preying on the matatu industry. They are an extortion ring which we will destroy," said Murungaru.
