According to one protester, stray bullets aimed at dispersing a mob which wanted to kill thieves struck dead two young men in a shop.
Speaking to the enraged youth, the area county representative of Machakos Central Ward Cornelius Kitheka called for calm as relevant authorities investigate the incident.
“I have to confirm to you that 3 people were shot at by the police today in the morning. I also confirm that police have arrested the thieves found inside the shop next to Cooperative Bank.
However those found inside the shops were not policemen as some of you are saying but locals and some of you know them very well,” said Kitheka.
