Nairobi, Kenya – A business man was shot five times by a lone gunman at his family home in Kabuti Village, Kirinyaga County, in front of his kinsmen, resulting to his untimely death.

The victim identified as Mr Stephen Kariuki, 41, on Wednesday, November 23, 2022, was shot five times by a yet-to-be-identified gunman who was riding a motorcycle at 1 pm as he enjoyed a cup of tea with friends and family.

According local media, Nairobinews, the assailant, who had covered his face using a motorcycle helmet, walked into the sitting room of his grandmother’s house, where he was seated before he retrieved a firearm and shot the deceased thrice in the chest and twice in different parts of the body.

A person near the scene, identified only as Mr. Muturi said that the man threatened the rest of the mourners with a firearm before he boarded his motorbike, started the engine, and left.

“You could not tell that he was about to be killed, he was always very humble and calm as well. We were shocked when we were told that he had been shot dead,” said a lady who interacted with him that morning.
