    Nairobi on its knees as gangsters run riot ​

    Frightened pedestrians take cover as gangsters and police exchange fire during a recent robbery incident in Nairobi. Such scenes have become common in the city

    By DOMINIC WABALAPosted Monday,

    April 20 2009 at 18:09


    In Summary
    Wilson Juma Abura had just had his regular workout at a city gym and was walking to his car at about 8pm. Two gunmen lying in wait emerged and shot him five times in the chest and stomach at point-blank range. The ministry of Public Works engineer died instantly.

    The April 7 incident outside Gym & Tonic on Baricho Road near Nakumatt Mega had all indications of a well-planned execution rather than a spontaneous crime or a carjacking gone wrong.

    According to witnesses, the two gunmen waited for Mr Abura and called out his name when he was putting his bag into the car. As he turned and surrendered on seeing guns pointed at him, the hit men fired and disappeared as watchmen in the vicinity fled at the sound of gunshots.

    The gangsters did not attempt to steal his car or frisk him for his wallet or any other valuables.

    This is one of the many incidents of murder and armed crime in Nairobi even as police paradoxically maintain the situation is normal.

    Virtually every corner of the city has become unsafe as hoodlums lurk all over. Many lives have been snuffed out and others maimed, a situation that makes the city horrendous.

    Two weeks ago, a member of the same gym, Mr Ben Oyomba, was shot dead as he was driving near Museum Hill. The transport company fleet manager was talking to a friend on his phone at the time of the shooting. The friend on the other end heard the gunshot before the phone went silent.

    Mr Abura, a father if four, was buried on Saturday at his Amerikwai village home in Busia.

    He and Mr Oyomba are among six people who have been brutally murdered in the city in the last two weeks.

    Although police have obtained Close Circuit Television pictures of the suspects in Mr Abura’s killing, no arrests have been made so far.

    Two weeks before Mr Abura’s murder, the bodies of Police Chief Inspector Henry Anunda and his son Josephat Omambia Anunda, a former University of Nairobi engineering student, were recovered in a coffee plantation in Kiamumbi area in Kahawa West.

    Initial reports indicated the police officer had gone to visit his son in Kiamumbi area when they were abducted and held hostage before being killed using the officer’s own gun.

    The police, in a statement, blamed the killing on the outlawed Mungiki sect. The statement said the father of five may have been killed because his presence was seen as a threat to sect activities in the area.

    It was later revealed Mr Anunda and his son had been held hostage for a while and had been forced to withdraw Sh100,000 before they were killed. The officer’s car was later found abandoned outside a bar in Kayole area.

    Father and son were buried last Friday at Kiogoro Otamba village near Kegina SDA church.

    Like in the other murders, no suspect has been arrested.

    Then there is the yet unresolved murder of Senior Resident Magistrate Rogers Fundi in the Pipeline area of Embakasi.

    Mr Fundi’s half-naked body was recovered outside a bar on North Airport road about 20 metres away from the crime-ridden Mukuru slums.

    Mungiki kill villagers in night raid


    [​IMG]

    Wananchi in Gathaithi village in Nyeri East, Central Province, Kenya view the bodies of some of the 28 people who were killed by Mungiki sect members on April 21, 2009.


    In Summary
    They crept out of the night like ghouls, dozens of Mungiki followers, the axes, pangas and rungus in their hands betraying their intentions: to kill.

    In their wake, they left devastated families, mutilated bodies and a despairing sense that the spreading pools of blood could well cover the whole land.

    The sect had regrouped to retaliate the killing of 14 of its members by vigilantes. They selected Gathaithi village in Nyeri East District in Kenya's Central Province and planned mass murder with cold blooded precision... MORE!

    Not only Nairobi, but Kenya as a whole is no longer safe. There is no leadership in Kenya, how can we hope for safety?

    When Kenyans get a fairly elected President maybe we can hope for safety and a solutions to the myriad problems facing Kenyans.

    People being slaughtered in their own backyards?!!!&&%$#

    Yaani i do not have enough words to say anything...Where does one start to even make a comment? which incident do you give priority?
    Mungiki
    Insecurity
    Border disputes
    Famine
    IDP
    Scandals-oil? Maize?
    Corruption
    Failed Coalition Government

    Which one should we talk about first because one will grow old before finishing even one topic.

    paharps he wants to show off to us that Nairobbery is same as New York or Los Angeles.

    Kibera is the worst of all in africa, you can't even compare it with manzese or the whole of Tandare or the former uwanja wa fisi. kibera for some of you who have been there, is unspeakable mazee.
