Gunmen shoot dead policeman and trader

05 October 2015, 11:31 Philomena Chebet

Nairobi - A police officer and a businessman were shot dead over the weekend by  unknown people in a robbery attempt at Kaptama Market in Mt Elgon Sub-county.

The administration police office attached to the local AP camp responded to an alarm in the  Saturday 2am incident, only for him to be ambushed by gangmen who had already shot dead a trader in the market.

The officer was shot eight times by the gunmen , who melted into the darkness after reportedly making away with KES 200,000, before a reinforcement of security agents arrived at the scene.

Bungoma County Police Commander Mutinda Munyoli who confirmed the incident said security agents have already launched investigations, and the perpetrators of the crime will be brought to book.

“ We have started investigations and it is only a matter of time before we apprehend the suspects. We are appealing to members of the public with information on the suspects to share it with security agents,” said the police boss.

Area MP John Serut who was among the leaders that visited the area  to condole with the family of the businessman who was shot dead said the government should carry out a disarmament exercise in Mt Elgon as a matter of urgency.

"These fire-arms in wrong hands should be repossessed by security agents immediately, the gun owners who are terrorizing my constituents should be brought to book. No armed criminal should be spared," said Serut.

The legislator said armed thugs should not be allowed to cause unnecessary tension in the constituency, which noted has enjoyed relative peace following the Sabaot Land Defense Forces (SLDF) militia instigated mayhem that occurred in 2006-2008.

"I am afraid if these few people are not disarmed, then the region risks going back to the dark ages. We do not want a resurgence of what happened in the region during the reign of the militiamen," said Serut, who asked police to ensure that the people behind the  twin murders are brought to book.
