A robbery mission has turned tragic after armed thieves disagreed and turned against each other leaving two dead at a popular Resort in Rukenya near Kutus town, Kirinyaga County.
It is alleged that the nine robbers jumped over the gate of Thiba Falls Resort and immediately went for the night guard .
Reports indicated that the guard was stripped naked before being tied with a rope during the 3 am incident.
The robbers then broke into the bar counters and engaged in a drinking spree before loading some into a vehicle they had parked outside the premises.
Business proprietor Paul Kigundu arrived at the scene shortly after 7am upon being informed of the incident .
“When I arrived, I found police officers already at the scene staring at the two bloody stained bodies which were lying apart within the parking bay. There were also many broken bottles that the robbers must have used to fight each other,” Kigundu told the media.
Also recovered were an assortment of crude weapons across the road.
Gichugu East Sub- County police Commander Antony Mbogo, who also arrived at the scene, declined to talk to the press insisting his seniors were also present trying to piece up the details available before coming to a conclusion as what transpired.
Curious onlookers thronged the scene to capture a glimpse of the corpses which were still lying there by 9 am .
The bodies were later removed from th scene and taken to Kerugoya Level 4 hospital mortuary to enable police get their fingerprints in order to establish their identities while those who fled were being pursued.
