A watchman was clobbered to death at a bar in Kajiado Town on Wednesday night by people who had allegedly posed as customers.
Kajiado OCPD Eric Nteere told KNU that two people who had earlier posed as customers and had even booked a room at Kampala Travelers Bar turned on the watchman after the close of business in the night.
“They had been allocated room and even given more drinks to take after the workers had left. It appears they gave the watchman beer before clobbering him to death,” said Nteere on the phone.
The local police boss said workers arrived at the premises this morning only to realise the suspects had taken off with Sh46, 000 in cash and a television set after killing the watchman.
The suspects killed the watchman and moved on to break into the main bar from within and movements could not have been easily noted from outside.
Nteere allayed fears that there was tension in Kajiado town and only added that the police have started investigations.
“This is a normal criminal activity which we are following up. My appeal to the business community is to make sure they retain all the details of strangers taking up rooms in their lodges,” added Nteere.
