A journalist at Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC) was last night shot dead in her house in Ngong on Wednesday night.

Betty Barasa a senior editor was shot two times in the head by suspected thugs during a robbery incident at her new home.

Barasa had reportedly arrived at her house shortly after 8.00 PM when the suspected thugs waylaid her to the parking of her house.

Police say that the thugs who were armed with AK 47 rifles were hiding at a home that was still under construction next to Barasa’s home.

One of the three thugs then matched Barasa to her bedroom upstairs as the other two remained with the family members in the living room.

Barasa had just moved into the house with her family.

Until her death she was a senior video editor at KBC. She was also a lecturer at the Kenya Institute of Mass Communication.
