Prison warder turned boda boda thug killed by mob in botched robbery in Nairobi

A prison warden attached to the Nairobi West Prison was killed by irate members of the public who cornered him following a robbery mission.

Constable Ken Kavunga Wali, who was armed with a Ceska pistol loaded with 15 rounds of 9mm calibre, was part of a three-man gang that had accosted a woman along Muchai Drive in Kilimani and robbed her of her mobile phone and other valuables.

Following the 9pm incident, the woman raised alarm attracting irate members of the public who ran after the gangsters.

After a bried chase the warder panicked and crashed the boda boda and was immediately set upon by angry members of the public with kicks and blows until police came to his rescue.

His other two accomplices managed to run away and melt into the darkness.

The badly beaten warder was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

A Ceska pistol serial number KE KPS H1768 with 15 rounds of 9mm calibre was recovered from the deceased.

The motorbike used by the suspects registration number KMFW 321J was also impounded by the detectives and towed to Capitol Hill police station.

Efforts to arrest the deceased’s accomplices are at advanced stages.
