Five suspected thugs killed in a botched carjacking

15 August 2014, 12:36 Kimutai Langat

Kericho - Five suspected gangsters were killed Friday morning at Majengo Estate on the outskirts of Kericho town.

Confirming the incident, area OCPD Kipkemoi Rop said that four of them were killed by irate members of the public while one was shot by police.

According to Rop, the suspects who were in a gang of seven had hired a taxi from the Easy Coach offices and attempted to hijack the driver.

“One was shot by the police at majengo area as he tried to flee,” said Rop.

He said the driver raised alarm, attracting members of the public who cornered the suspects and subjected them to mob justice.

Several pangas and electronic gadgets were found at the suspects’ houses and police have launched a manhunt for two who escaped.

“They had hired a taxi in false pretense that they wanted to collect some goods from the Easy Coach offices but carjacked the vehicle,” explained the OCPD.

The bodies were moved to the Kericho District hospital mortuary.
