Last week, gunmen shot two policemen in Kibichoi, Kiambu fatally wounding them. Police set up a manhunt to nab the gangsters who got away with an AK47 rifle.
Earlier today, an unidentified man presented himself, in the company of pastors, at Ngong Police Station and confessed that he was among the gunmen.

The officers on duty were stunned when the man, Thomas Audi made the unexpected entry and surrendered himself. He was later handed over to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations in Kiambu according to the Ngong OCPD.
Police now say that the man named several suspects that they believe were involved in the fatal shooting of the officers.

 The gunmen had ambushed the two officers, Marin Irungu and Paul Maina as they patrolled the Miti Kenda area last week.

According to eyewitnesses, the gunmen sprayed four bullets into each of the officers before they escaped on waiting motorcycles along the Kibichoi-Gathage road.

Recently, police have borne the brunt of protesting citizens and gangsters as they try to maintain law and order.
