Four Shot Dead in Machakos

A day after President Uhuru Kenyatta congratulated the security forces

According to The Standard, armed officers from the Special Crimes prevention unit trailed the four suspects who were in a hired car to Kathiani-Kungundo road before the shootout.

The victims are believed to be behind a series of robberies in Nairobi.

The gangsters are believed to operate from a hideout in Kathiani, Machakos County.

Police recovered a pistol, communication equipment and electronic goods from the suspects.

The slain suspects were young men believed to be aged between 19-24 years.

Their bodies have since been moved to a mortuary in Machakos with investigations underway.

This comes a day after President Uhuru Kenyatta congratulated the security forces for the manner in which they maintained security during the recently concluded elections.
