Nairobi - 3 boda boda riders have been shot by thugs in an attempted robbery in Nairobi.
The three were shot after rushing to an MPesa shop in Zimmerman area which was being robbed and belonged to their friend to help out.
On confronting the thugs, they were shot at and injured.
It is estimated that as much as KES 75,000 was stolen from the shop.
The three were in stable condition by the time News24 saw them at the Mama Lucy Hospital in Nairobi.
Police are still trailing the thugs.
" We are following them and we will catch up. They will not go far," Nairobi Police boss Japheth Koome said.
Incidences of gun crime in the eastlands region of the city have risen, with just recently, Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko's bodyguard being shot dead in the same area.
