Police in Thika are holding two men suspected to be part of the gang that shot dead a Thika medic last month in Ngoingwa Estate.

The duo are said to be part of a very dangerous gang that has committed a series of murders and robberies in Thika and the neighbourhood in the recent past.

Confirming the arrest, Thika Deputy County Commissioner Douglas Mutai said the two have also been linked to an attempted assassination of a Gatanga-based trader in Murang’a County and will be arraigned in court today.

A gun believed to be part of the ammunition used by the duo to commit crime has also been recovered.

The two suspects were arrested last week by sleuths who lay a trap when they went to receive money from the said businessman so as to spare his life after confessing that they had been paid by a local politician to eliminate a former area MP.

Upon interrogation, the men, one of whom is a taxi driver at Kirwara revealed the name of the politician who had contracted them to kill the businessman whom they had been trailing and calling on his mobile phone for two months.

Doctor Kagimbi Kimani escaped death narrowly when he was shot four times by gangsters who also killed his wife at their Ngoingwa home in Thika two weeks ago. His wife, Charity Wanjiru, who was a nurse in Thika died on the spot after she was shot three times through the chest by the thugs who waylaid the couple as they drove home at night.

Immediately after the Ngoingwa attack, the gunmen fled in a car and kidnapped a resident whom they later dumped at Gachagi area of Thika after robbing him of his mobile phone.

They then stopped a motorist at Makongeni area and robbed him of his vehicle before shooting him through the mouth and abandoning him at Landless estate.

Earlier, detectives in Murang’a had arrested a prominent Gatanga politician and his aide and locked up at Kabati Police Station in connection to the trader’s assassination plot before being released under unclear circumstances.
