Factory guard murdered in attempted coffee theft

05 September 2016, 13:51 Joseph Njung'eh

Kirinyaga - A night guard at Ruiru Coffee Factory in Kiangai village, Kirinyaga County, has been brutally murdered by unknown thugs who were attempting to steal coffee beans.

Three other guards managed to escape from the robbers who were armed with crude weapons.

Kirinyaga West Sub-County Deputy Commissioner Samuel Mwati said Michael Wamae, 39, was killed in cold blood.

He said the assailants attempted to break into the main store but escaped later into bushes after the other guards raised alarm.

“Were it not for the guards strategy to keep watch from four different locations within the factory premises, the robbers would have killed all of them but thank God that did not happen,” said Mwati.

Mwati said police visited the scene immediately and collected the watchman’s body which they later transferred to the nearby Karatina Hospital mortuary.

He said the assailants will be apprehended since police have launhed investigations into the matter.

Incidents of coffee theft have increased in the region. Barely a week ago, coffee worth KES 1.2 million was stolen at Kieni Coffee Factory in the neighboring Mathira constituency.
