Night guard killed

A dark cloud hangs above Sango market in Likuyani Sub County following the brutal murder of a night watchman by unknown armed thugs.

Speaking to the Kenya News Agency on Thursday morning, Mr. Joseph Gaitano regretted the murder of Mr. Jotham Wafula, aged 49.

According to Gaitano, the deceased met his death while manning his business premise at the Sango trading centre.

I was shocked to find Wafula writhing in pain next to main entrance to my shop building. Blood was strewn all over, at about 6am Thursday,

Gaitano told KNA.

Efforts by the shop owner to save Wafula’s life by rushing him to Likuyani Sub County Hospital were futile as he gasped his last breath

upon arrival at the facility.

Sango sub location assistant chief, Mrs. Fridah Lusweti confirmed the incident, which has sent panic among area residents.

Mrs. Lusweti reported the deceased had several deep cuts on the head, hands and legs, a pointer to the fact that his assailant(s) must have

used a sharp object on him.

She added security organs have launched investigations into the incident.
