Two varsity workers killed, police injured in 8 am ambush

Two female workers at Technical University of Mombasa, Kwale Campus were Tuesday shot dead in an ambush by armed gunmen at Mabokoni area in Msambweni, Kwale County.

One Administration police officer accompanying the workers sustained gun wounds while another colleague and the driver of the university saloon vehicle escaped unhurt in the 8am incident.

The officers provide security at the campus and the vehicle was ambushed before reaching the University.

Msambweni OCPD Joseph Chebusit confirmed the incident saying that those injured were rushed to hospital.

Mr. Chebusit said security officers have mounted a manhunt for the attackers who escaped into the bushes after the attack.

He appealed to the members of the public to volunteer any information that may lead to the arrest of those behind the criminal act.

We won’t rest until the culprits are brought to book and my request to the public is to help us in finding the criminals, said Mr. Chebusit.

He added that no student was injured in the incident, which comes barely a month after another one in which two policemen manning Ukunda ACK Church were shot dead by unknown people.
