Kiambu Deputy Governor bodyguard shot

In January this year, Kiambu Deputy Governor Dr James Nyoro’s bodyguard was shot and injured while his father was killed during a robbery incident at Kamuguga Village in Kabete.

The bodyguard identified as John Mungai was ambushed at his home by two gangsters as he went to close the gate to the compound.

One of the robbers who was armed with a pistol, demanded money and mobile phones from the family of Mungai.

While dragging Mungai and the family to the house, one of the robbers got injured on the staircase leading to the door which forced the other one to fire at the body guard and his father in fear that the victims were attempting to fight back.
