Pamoja FM radio journalist was killed early Monday morning on his way home from work under unclear circumstances.

Mohammed Hassan Marjan met his untimely death near Kibera Law Courts at dawn. Since Ramadhan period began the deceased hosted a special Ramadhan show every night.

Kibra residents have accused the police of laxity particularly during the dusk to dawn curfew.

According to Kibra sub-county deputy commissioner Gideon Ombogi, the police have taken over the matter and investigations have begun.

“Once the body was taken away to the mortuary a group of young men gathered and went out looking for a suspected killer. They then took him to the scene of crime and murdered him there and then.” Said Ombogi.

The two bodies have now been taken to the City Motuary awaiting an autopsy.

In a post seen on social media the sister to the deceased questions why an innocent person was robbed and killed.

“This Ramadhan just like in the past years, he would spend the whole night in the studios sharing qaswidas and khutbas from different sheikhs. The motive of his killing is unknown,” says Siyama Ismail.

“I am left speechless. An innocent husband, father, grand-father lost his life in the hands of free loaders! All I can say is Inna-lillahi wa-Inna Ilaihi Rajiun (To you we belong and to you we shall return), May Allah grant you Jannatul Firdaus#Mohammed- Hassan-Marjan. We your family, the Muslims and all Pamoja FM fans at large will miss you.” Adds Siyama.
