A Nairobi-based businessman was shot dead by unknown assailants outside his shop in Kibera.
The businessman only identified as Ngugi was attacked by a gang of two armed men who approached him as he was closing his shop in order to go to the market.
According to eye witnesses, the thugs first started conversing in a local dialect before they ordered the businesssman to surrender the all cash.
A brief scuffle ensued before the thugs shot the man twice at close range; in the chest and on the leg. They robbed him the cash, shot in the air to disperse a crowd and fled on a waiting motorcycle.
The businessman was thereafter rushed to a nearby hospital where he later succumbed to the gun shot wounds.
The victim’s body was taken to mortuary pending postmortem.
Investigations into Ngugi's death have commenced, with police seeking eyewitnesses’ accounts and CCTV recordings to unravel the murder.
The country has in the recent past witnessed similar shocking murders.
