Police arrested two suspected thugs after they were caught on CCTV camera shooting dead an MPesa agent at a chemist Ngara area, Nairobi.

Police say Jamal Maina Macharia and Tom Mbugua were arrested in Majengo slums on Wednesday and are expected before Kibera law courts to face several charges including robbery with violence and illegally possessing a gun.

Nairobi Area CID boss Nicholas Kamwende  says they are looking for a third suspect who has been linked to the incident.

They were all caught on camera harassing and robbing agents in the shop after killing one and later escaped on foot. Police say they believe the men have been behind a series of other spate of robberies in the city.

Relatives of the deceased took his body to the scene on Thursday morning as part of prayers before they depart for western Kenya for burial.

Police say they are focusing on criminals who have been targeting MPesa agents in the city robbing them of their cash and valuables.

Elsewhere, a suspected carjacker was Wednesday night shot dead in a botched robbery in Kinoo area, Nairobi and a car recovered.

Police said they were alerted of the carjacking incident of a woman prompting a chase before the gang stopped at the shopping centre and tried to escape on foot.

It was then that police acted and managed to kill one suspect while three of his accomplices managed to escape on foot.

Police say the woman who had been carjacked was not wounded and her car was not damaged.

The killing brought to five the number of suspects killed Wednesday alone. Three were killed along Kangundo Road and one in the city centre in botched robberies.
