“They came in through the kitchen door which was, apparently, not locked as we watched TV with my wife in the living room. I only noticed too late that we were in danger and before I could open my mouth I was hit on the head with a heavy metallic object,” said Ngunjiri after recording a further statement at Kitengela police station.

The journalist said the thugs collected valuables from the house before going for his mobiles phones and that of his wife.

“When we thought they are through with us, one came back and demanded I produce money if I want to live and see my children grow,” said Ngunjiri, who received eight stitches on his head.

He said he attempted to explain to the three raiders that he has been out of employment for a long time, but they would not hear anything.

The police said they are investigating the matter and appealed to residents of Kitengela to report suspicious people whose movement and intention are suspect.
