Armed gunmen kill Kinango Chief, make away with KES 150 000

03 June 2015, 12:10

Kwale - Police in Kwale are investigating the murder of Gandini location chief, Harrison Munga who was killed Tuesday night.

Munga was killed at around 7:30 pm at his home by four men who were armed with rifles and a machete.

The assailants are said to have also stolen KES 150 000 and the late chief's Nokia 1110 phone among other personal effects from his house during the incident.

Two live round of ammunition of 7.62 millimeter and five spent cartridges were recovered from the scene.

Kinango deputy county commissioner, Moses Ivuto confirmed the incident and said that the deceased was sitting outside their house when the incident occurred.

He was shot thrice by the gunmen who later escaped on foot.

“He was with his three children and the information we are getting is that his wife was locked in the house as the gunmen ransacked it for money,” said Ivuto on Wednesday.

Ivuto said that his officers reached the scene of incident past midnight since the area is far, but have launched investigations into the incident.

“It was at night and hard to establish how they were dressed but police will be looking at which type of firearm was used,” he added.

According to the officer, nobody else was injured during the incident even though the wife said she was hit with a machete.

He said the body was later taken to Kinango hospital mortuary for postmortem.

“We have not had any such attack on a government official; to the best of my knowledge, this is the first,” he said.

He urged members of public to cooperate with police and volunteer information which can lead to the arrest of the killers.

“For now we don’t know exactly what the motive of such killing was,” he added.
