“They are referred to as ‘Aguthi’ (hit men)… very soon they will all be arrested, we are alert,” he said. “We will also not spare those who seek their ‘services’.”
Other incidences include last month’s killing of George Muchai who was the Kabete MP and his three aides along Kenyatta Avenue.
The four were sprayed with bullets at close range at about 4.30 am when their vehicle slowed down at the Nyayo House round about. Six suspects have since been arrested though police are yet to file charges against them.
A prominent businessman and land dealer in Ruai was also murdered on October 3, last year in broad daylight by unknown AK47 brandishing gunmen driving in two cars in a similar manner.
The same month, another property dealer was shot eight times along the Ruiru-Ruai by-pass by unidentified hit-men while in the company of his wife, child and a house-help.
The wife was injured but the kid and their aide escaped unhurt.
Days later, a real estate businessman based in Rongai was murdered in his house in presence of his wife and children near Olepolos in Ngong.
In majority of these cases, police says after preliminary investigations “it has always been established that there was a dispute before…mostly land disputes.”
