Ugly Scene As Night Guard Brutally Murdered, Property Of Unknown Value Stolen From Church, Karatina

Few months ago, the Kenya Private Security Workers Union disclosed that it loses up to five guards weekly in the country to crime.

Unknown people hacked to death a security guard at the PCEA Ragati Church, Karatina Parish and escaped with property of unknown value.

The guard was on duty when a gang raided on Friday night and broke into the church.

According to reports by a reliable source, the guard was bludgeoned by blunt objects and his body abandoned outside the church.

Bloodstains and brains were splattered at the scene of murder as a crowd milled there to have a glimpse of it.

Doors were broken into and valuables stolen. Officials at the church said the offices of the senior pastor, accounts and secretary were broken into, ransacked and property stolen.

Police arrived at the scene long after the incident had happened and took the body to a nearby mortuary. No arrest has been made so far.

Police say they are yet to know what was stolen from the church in the night incident.

The incident has drawn the attention of the guards’ union officials who want police to take steps that will ensure their safety.
