Speaker Muturi’s guards shoot dead by suspected gangster
The two constables were driving one of the Speaker’s official cars along Westlands Road in Nairobi County when they saw three armed men on a motorcycle robbing a pedestrian.
The policemen stopped and shot at the thugs, killing one while the other two escaped.
One of the suspects shot at the officers while fleeing and shattered the rear windscreen of the Speaker’s car.
They found an Ekol P29 pistol loaded with four rounds of ammunition.
The Mercedes Benz registration number GK A133R was later driven to Parklands Police Station
Meanwhile, a constable attached to Industrial Area Police Station was arrested over the weekend on suspicion of being involved in crime in the Lang’ata and Karen areas in Nairobi County.
The constable was arrested while driving alone in a car hired from a local firm.
Makadara CID boss Zack Nangulu said police were yet to complete investigations.
“He was arrested by officers from Lang’ata, but we are yet to conclude the investigations. So far, we have not found any tangible evidence linking him to the alleged offences,” he said.
