No breakthrough for Nakumatt Manager murder

By Cyrus Ombati | May 10th 2015

Nairobi: Police are yet to get the gunmen who killed a Nakumatt Supermarket manager on Thursday evening.

A team of police officers visited the chain supermarket’s headquarters along Mombasa Road and questioned some staff there before leaving.

The officers say they are yet to know the motive of the killing of James Karanja who was in charge of auditing at the supermarket.

Makadara OCPD Nehemiah Langat said they are yet to know the motive and the attackers.

“We are still investigating to know the motive. There are so many theories being fronted on what led to his killing but they remain that,” said Langat.

Karanja was shot twice in the head and once in the chest shortly after leaving the company’s offices.

 Mr Langat said the gunmen on a motorcycle rode towards Mombasa Road after the shooting without stealing anything from him on Thursday at about 6 pm.

“We found three spent cartridges on the scene. His phone and wallet were in the car which raises many questions on the motive,” he said.

Cases of crimes committed by thugs on motorcycles have been on the rise.

Plans are underway to regulate the operations of the motorbikes.
