A bodyguard attached to Githunguri MP Gabriel Kago allegedly shot a nightguard dead at a club in Ngengu village, Kiambu County.

According to witnesses, the constable ordered the watchman to open during odd hours so that he would buy beer but when the nightguard declined the bodyguard shot him.

The nightguard was then rushed to Radiant hospital, Kiambu where he died of gunshot wounds.


Kiambu Deputy County Commander Lazarus Wambua confirmed that the officer has been arrested as police conduct further investigations.

The officer caused a scene and refused to open his house for close to two hours before he voluntarily surrendered to the officers.

The incident comes barely three days after President Uhuru Kenyatta directed bars to be re-opened.
