, NAIROBI, Kenya Feb 14 – Former Moyale MP Philip Godana has been shot dead during a robbery at his home in Syokimau.
The legislator was killed on Saturday morning when gunmen stormed his house and stole money and other valuables.
Area residents were planning a major protest on Saturday, accusing the government of doing little to protect citizens in the wake of carjacking incidents, murder and other criminal incidents.
Godana’s killing comes a week after Kabete Member of Parliament George Muchai was gunned down alongside his two bodyguards and a driver on Kenyatta Avenue.
Muchai was buried on Friday at his home in Kamulu while one of his bodyguards was set to be buried later Saturday.
Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery on Friday announced that they had arrested three more suspects and recovered the murder weapon, a G3 rifle the gunmen used in the attack.
“Police are making very good progress because there are now four suspects in custody, they have also recovered the weapon used and a pistol stolen from one of the bodygyards,” Nkaissery told journalists on Friday, and urged anyone with information about the killings to volunteer.
