The agent who had just finished closing her shop was attacked by two robbers who shot her from behind and made away with an unknown amount of money.

“We have launched the investigations and we assure the citizens that we are going to nap them soon, we believe these are the cartels that are out to get easy money from M-Pesa agents,” he said.
The OCPD said the 30 year old female agent had closed her shop and was going to board a motorbike when two robbers attacked her from behind and when she tried to resist they shot her twice in the back.
“She was taken to Bomu clinic but succumb to her injuries, the body has since been taken to coast provincial general hospital,” he said.
