A young woman has been shot dead by a man believed to be his boyfriend in Mukuru Kwa Njenga in Embakasi.
Monica Katumbi aged 24 was shot dead by her boyfriend Joel last night at around 11pm.
The man reportedly accosted the mother on one where she was seated with other people and demanded that she follows her.
“When the lady refused, he shot in the air and dispersed the other people. He then picked Monica and started to physically assault her and then shot her to death,” said Katumbi
Neigbours say that the two have been having differences that have always ended up with the man physically assaulting the lady.
“Before he shot her, he had previously assaulted her and even before the incident he had assaulted her and given her a black eye,” says one neighbour.
According to the neighbours, the deceased had reported severally to the police to no success.
“She would come to my place whenever she was assaulted and I would advise her to go and report to the police. Monica reported to the police several times but police took no action,” said the neighbour.
Apparently Katumbi’s mother was aware that her daughter was in an abusive relationship but could do nothing.
After the heinous act, the man reportedly went missing and is yet to be arrested.
