Watchman Murdered As Thugs Rob Machakos Supermarket

A night guard has been murdered at Tala market, Machakos county this morning by unknown criminals who stormed into the Fast Mart supermarket.

A similar incident occurred roughly two weeks ago in Dorcas City Rgc Nguluni, where another watchman was murdered. 

OCPD Matungulu Peter Omondi, who declined to talk to the media at the site but subsequently verified over the phone that an unknown number of persons approached the shop and pulled the watchman. 

The burglars also drilled holes in the walls and cut the electricity. 

They then stormed into the supermarket and trashed the cash deposit box, taking an unknown amount of money and various other unknown things, which they are currently investigating the inventory records to determine.

The late watchman’s body has now been transferred to Kangundo hospital morgue, where an inquiry is underway. 

Tala mca Jackson ndaka denounced the tragedy, adding it was tragic that a guy working for his family died in such a horrific way. 

He stated that there has been an increase in insecurity, and that it was just two weeks ago that another watchman was assassinated in a Nguluni church, and that nothing had been done until now. 

Ndaka requested that CS Kindiki Kithure remove the top police officers in Matungulu who were unwilling to do their jobs. 

He stated that if the police are not relocated, they will have a peaceful protest in 7 days.

The chair of Tala market, Anna Katile Kyalo, expressed sadness at the death of the watchman, despite the fact that the police station is less than a kilometer away. 

She accused the security guards of being hesitant and merely going about demanding money from pubs and restaurants. 

Thomas Mutuku also expressed his sadness after learning of the watchman’s death while on the job. 

He further stated that the security personnel were hesitant to do their jobs and urged the government to relocate the policemen already in place. 

According to James Mwangangi, insecurity has escalated in Tala, even in the villages, and he referenced the Nguluni church incident, in which another watchman was slain.
