MCA as­pi­rant shot ‘by cop’ buried in Lari

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties | Central -

Thirty-two-year-old Ki­ambu MCA as­pi­rant William Mwangi was on Satur­day buried at his home in Kaba­gare vil­lage, Lari con­stituency.

Mwangi was al­legedly shot by Fly­ing Squad of­fi­cer Ed­ward Man­julu at 3am on Sun­day last week as he left Club U-Turn in Limuru town.

Rev­el­ers said a com­mo­tion en­sued at 1am, when the of­fi­cer de­manded to drink beer on Mwangi’s tab, but his friends in­sisted he pay for his own drink. Man­julu was re­port­edly es­corted out of the pub, but he lurked around, waited for Mwangi to leave, then shot him.

Mwangi’s wife Agnes Mukuiya said she is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing great sor­row.

“Why did the per­son who killed my hus­band have to do it? He robbed me of the father of my child, my lover and my best friend,” she said in her trib­ute.

Mukuiya con­tin­ued, “I just want him to know I am in deep pain. I am suf­fer­ing. Why let an­other per­son suf­fer?”

Man­julu will be charged to­day at the High Court in Ki­ambu.
