The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Central -

Two men were shot dead and a woman in­jured when they were at­tacked by thugs in Karan­jee vil­lage, Limuru con­stituency, on Sun­day evening.

Limuru po­lice boss Sa­muel Obara yes­ter­day said John Mutheki and Delvis Aminga died on the spot. Aminga’s wife Peris Brachi sur­vived with a bul­let lodged in her head. She is ad­mit­ted at Tigoni Sub­county Hospi­tal.

Obara said Mutheki was es­cort­ing Aminga, Brachi and an­other man iden­ti­fied as Boi, af­ter they paid him a visit.

He said they used a short­cut be­tween Karan­jee and Kabuku near the Bux­ton Rail­way tun­nel, where they were at­tacked by three rob­bers armed with a pis­tol.

“They started run­ning away, but two were shot dead. The woman fell af­ter she was shot in the head. Only Boi man­aged to es­cape. We do not know where he is,” Obara said.

Yes­ter­day, res­i­dents said the three were found on Sun­day night.

Mutheki’s sis­ter Naomi Wan­jiku said the four vis­ited their home on Sun­day and ate lunch be­fore leav­ing for Kabuku at 2pm. “We talked a lot be­fore they left. I didn’t know that was the last time I would see my el­der brother,” she said.
