A family in Nairobi’s Njiru area is seeking justice after their kin was mysteriously killed by unknown assailants in the area.
George Okello was killed two weeks ago and his body was recovered in an alley by friends,
Okello’s sister Lillian Awino says she got a call from one of his friends who told her that George had been killed.
Awino claims that before he died George had complained to his friends that there are people who wanted to kill him.
“His friends told us that on particular day, George left the house crying that there are people who wanted to kill him only for him to end up dead that day,” says Awino.
Before his death Okello was a guard at a garage in Njiru.
“We are asking the government to help us unearth his killers, because his death has left us very devastated,” said Awino.
Last week residents of Njiru area lamented the deteriorating state of insecurity in the area brought about by power black out.
The residents claime that some people have ended up dead following the increasing cases of muggings that have rocked the area since Kenya Power cut off power in the area.
“We are suffering in the hands of these muggers, we have lost phones and money in the hands of these muggers some of us have even died,” cried a resident.
They claim that the muggers have taken advantage of the lack of power in the area to commit their heinous crimes.
“We have tried to talk to the OCS at the Twiga Police Post to help address the power and insecurity issue to no success. The OCS has refused to listen to us, ” cried another residents.
The residents want the muggers to be brought to book and power restored in the area to salvage the situation.
