Residents of Nairobi’s Kayole area have threatened to hold demonstrations to protest against police’s laxity to investigate the killing of a man in the area.
Susan Wathira says that Dickson Githinji a trader in Mihang’o area was shot by suspected thugs in his Mpesa shop in what they suspect was an inside job.
“The thugs came in at around 9:30 pm in his Mpesa shop. The three thugs were in a motorbike and demanded that Githinji gives them money, Githinji refused so they shot him,” narrated a neighbour.
Wathira says that the suspected thugs who were on a motorbike made away with Ksh. 100,000.
“When the thugs attacked Githinji in his shop, there was a woman in the shop. The woman had gone to buy milk in the shop at the time of the incident,” said Wathira.
Wathira claims that they suspect that the woman was part of the incident since she escaped untouched and did not lose anything that belonged to her.
“What is hurting us is that this lady who sells jaba just next door has never been questioned by the police, neither has she presented herself to the police to record a statement,” she said.
Kayole DCIO says that his office is aware on the matter are currently conducting investigations into the matter.
