Unknown Gunmen Fatally Shoot a 26-Year-Old in Busia

A spate of criminal activities in the border town of Busia has left locals living in untold fear and anguish as thugs continue to terrorise innocent people untamed.

Today, unknown gunmen waylaid a 26 year old man before fatally shooting him at 7 PM when he was checking into his house at Burumba Estate behind The Breeze Hotel, which ironically sits opposite Busia police station.

According to sources, the victim identified as Samuel Wafula Sireka had just wound up his usual endeavours and was retiring to his rented house only to meet with the cruel thugs.

After the shooting, well-wishers quickly rushed the victim who was bleeding uncontrollably and gasping for breath to nearby Busia county referral hospital for emergency care but he unfortunately succumbed to his injuries while undergoing treatment.
