Six suspected gangsters were on Sunday night killed in Nairobi. Some were lynched by angry mobs and others shot dead by police in separate crime incidents. One suspected gangster was shot dead by police in a foiled matatu carjacking in Dandora estate. Nairobi police boss Anthony Kibuchi said police officers on patrol within Dandora stage 41 noticed a commotion in a Toyota Shark matatu which they trailed after establishing that the passengers were under duress.
They then sought to arrest three of the passengers who were robbing other commuters and in the process shot and killed one of the suspects while his two accomplices managed to escape into Korogocho slums. " Police on patrol in Dandora Stage 41 noticed a commotion in a Toyota Shark matatu and gave chase after discovering that three of the passengers were robbing other passengers.

Five other suspected thieves were lynched to death in Kibera Soweto, Kahawa Wendani, Dandora estate Canaan village, Kayole estate Rast stage and in Kitengela. All the bodies were later transferred to the City Mortuary. Meanwhile, three gangsters armed with an AK47 rifle stormed into a residence in Spring Valley and robbed a man of US$ 6000 (Sh504,000), a television and two iphones before escaping in a taxi.
