RIP

Kamiti, who is the chief of Kamakwa area, was shot dead at a plantation located just a few meters from his compound.

“We heard the sound of gunshots from our houses, we didn’t know what had happened then we heard the screams and heard the chief had been shot,” a neighbor said.

Speaking to journalists the wife of the deceased revealed that the chief had just returned from work when he was gunned down by unknown assailants.

Ann Muthoni also divulged that her husband, who was dedicated towards eliminating criminals in the area, had received numerous death threats,

According to her, Kimiti never budged from his mission which clearly never sat well with some individuals in the area.

Confirming the Thursday evening incident Nyeri County Criminal Investigations Officer Charles Mutua asked residents to provide any information they may possess as a manhunt is launched to arrest the gunmen.

Nyeri Town MP Ngunjiri Wambugu sharply condemned the killing of the chief stating: "We really must stop this madness. Together.”

“My sincere condolences to the family and I also condemn the heinous act of his killing, we must weed out these wicked armed thugs,” Ngunjiri said.
