An official of a ranching company in Githunguri was shot dead Monday night

13, Apr 2016

An official of the Githunguri constituency ranching company in Ruiru was shot dead by gangsters on Monday night. The cold-blooded murder of John Waweru Wanjohi has caused fear and panic among other directors of the controversial land buying firm who had reported threats to their lives a day earlier. The company chairman John Maina said he and the deceased had gone to report the threats to Ruiru OCS on monday, just hours before the murder. 41 year old John Waweru, who is also a human rights crusader and runs a private security firm and a hotel, was gunned down after dropping a female employee in Nairobi’s Zimmerman area around 10.30 pm. The attackers reportedly used his gun to shoot him twice in the chest and leg. He died while undergoing treatment at the Rehema hospital in Kasarani where he was rushed by a Good Samaritan. The killers reportedly took away Waweru's pistol, but left his phone and other items in the vehicle.
