Klabu 36 all calm now as manhunt for murderous gang continues

By Nyaboga Kiage

It is exactly two weeks now since city politician Mr Samuel Ragira was murdered at Klabu 36, a popular joint frequently patronized by students of the University of Nairobi.

A spot check by Nairobi News on Wednesday revealed that business has gone back to normal even as the police continue with investigations into Mr Ragira’s murder.

Nairobi News has also learnt that the police are looking for more than 20 suspects who are believed to have been part of the two gangs that were terrorising traders at the market.

“We have a list of suspects who we are looking for and we shall get hold of all of them,” said a police source.

WANTED SUSPECTS

In a directive sent to the Kilimani and Central Police Station bosses, the officers have been tasked with finding the suspects and charging them in court.

At the market, it’s business as usual with university students purchasing various food stuffs from the traders.

Mr Thomas Makau told Nairobi News that everything is okay in the area, the only challenge being the county government.

This is after the county government issued an order stopping the traders from building stalls within the market.

POLICE PATROLS

“The challenge that we are now facing is the county government which has asked us to stop any developments here until they give us the go ahead,” he said.

Ms Janet Ombui, who runs a salon at the market, said youths who had been frustrating them disappeared as soon as Mr Ragira was shot dead.

She however said security has been enhanced with frequent police patrols in the area.

“Police have been patrolling this area and I hope they will deal with the menace,” she said.
