In Riruta, a man reacting to the cries of a distraught robbery victim was unlucky to lose his life when he came in the line of the assailants, who knifed him twice as they made their getaway.
George and Jackline Omondi were blissfully asleep in their bed at 5 a.m. yesterday when their slumber was abruptly disrupted by loud agonizing cries outside their door. Omondi got out of bed and raced for the door to help the sufferer.
A few minutes later, his wife Jackline went outside to see what was going on and found a gathering of people gathered around a body that was splayed on the ground.
When she got closer, she realized the man was her 48-year-old husband, who had just raced out of their house to help a robbery victim.
Earlier, the robbery victim had been approached by knife-wielding thugs who had taken his phone and were about to empty his pockets when Omondi ruined their celebration.
But sadly, as the miscreants let their victim loose they stabbed Omondi twice on the stomach and took flight, leaving him on the ground gasping for breath. He was later pronounced dead on arrival at Life Friends Medical Center.
Dagoreti based detectives have closed in on the suspects and it is only a matter of time before they pounce on them and make them pay for the gruesome murder of hero George Omondi, who dared to save the life of a fellow countryman but ended up paying the ultimate sacrifice with his own life.
