Man shot dead while preparing for wife's burial

04 November 2013, 19:30 Alfred Onyango

Migori - Sombre mood engulfed Kimaiga estate in Migori town after a group of armed men attacked and shot dead a man who was in the final stage of preparing for his wife's burial.

The man who was in his mid-twenties was attacked in his home where he, among other well wishers, were gathering to make arrangements for the burial of his wife who died a week ago.

The cold blood murder of the man who used to run a music store has exposed the deteriorating security in the town. Recently, people have been murdered and robbed even in broad daylight.

While confirming the incident, Migori OCPD, Alfred Makoma, said the man who was in a group of four, was shot in a tussle between them and the gang who were demanding money.

The residents are now weary of their security even as police assure them of the same. Makoma said that police have launched investigation and are in hot pursuit of the gang which is believed to be among the people who have been terrorizing the residents.
