According to Busia governor Sospeter Ojaamong, two men approached the deceased in the hotel's balcony. However, one of the assailants shot at the businessman at close range before they escaped.
"I send send my heartfelt condolences to the family of Texas Annex proprietor, Mr Alfred Obayo who was gunned downed this evening," posted Ojaamong on Facebook.
He added: "The deceased was seated at the balcony of his hotel when one of the two men who posed as customers shot him at close range before escaping."
The second term governor urged the police to urgently investigate the matter even as he called for efforts to have premises installed with CCTV cameras. Obayo's shocking death is a wake up call to the border town to boost its security.
