A suspected thug was this morning lynched by a mob after he and two of his accomplices tried to hijack a matatu in Dandora area, Nairobi.
The suspects had boarded a matatu posing as passengers while headed for the city centre when they tried to hijack it.
Other passengers turned against them and caught up with one lynching him while his accomplices managed to escape. Police say they are investigating the incident.
Mob lynching is criminal and police ask the public to surrender suspects they arrest for processing.
Meanwhile, the postmortem to determine the cause of the death of interior cabinet secretary Joseph Nkaissery is expected to be conducted today, Monday, July 10, at the Lee Funeral Home.
The exercise was scheduled for yesterday but was pushed to today because one of Nkaissery’s sons had not arrived from the US.
The son arrived last evening and pathologists from the government and the family says they are ready for the exercise.
Police have so far questioned more than ten people including his bodyguards as part of the probe into the death. The probe into the incident continues.
