Embu Businessman Shot by Gangsters in Another Daring Ambush
After being shot by criminals on his way home from work, an Embu businessman is currently recovering from critical injuries. On September 19, at around 9 p.m., Geoffrey Mwangi was attacked by five alleged thugs while riding home in a pickup from Embu town. The businessman allegedly had his automobile blocked by the suspect before he opened fire on it, seriously wounding his neck and wrists.

After carrying out the horrific act, the perpetrators vanished, leaving Mwangi unconscious in his car before being taken to Embu Referral Hospital, according to the Daily Nation.
His friend, who was in the car with him when the attack occurred, was unharmed. Later, when the businessman’s condition deteriorated, he was transported to Nairobi for specialized care. According to Julius Kyumbule, the head of the Embu West sub-county police, the culprits are being sought.
“We have started investigations to ascertain why the victim was shot,” he said. “The thugs left without taking anything from the trader.”
The town’s Kanyi Maina traders denounced the assault and urged the security team to move quickly with their inquiries.
We’re interested in finding out who attacked our employees and why he said. Maina bemoaned the rise in security incidents in the neighborhood and accused the police of taking breaks from their duties.
John Mate, president of the Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s Embu section, urged increased security in the area.
