A Mombasa court was on Monday morning told how a middle-aged man was allegedly murdered by guards at Nyali Centre, Mombasa in 2018.
David Wokabi Kamau was allegedly battered to death for urinating on grass outside the Topas club. Two night guards, Hamisi Hare Karisa and Said Mwamuye, are charged with Kamau’s murder.
Mr. Kamau who was in the company of friends had finished merrymaking at Topas club and was headed home when he excused himself to go and answer the short call of nature.
A confrontation is said to have ensued after one of the guards tried to stop him from urinating next to the parking lot.
According to Yvette Odhiambo a witness, the victim went to his car and tried leave the premises but he was unable to leave as the guard and seven others barricaded the gate.
When Mr. Kamau got out of his car to enquire why they were blocking him from leaving, they attacked him using rungus, kicks and blows.
He was rushed to Jocham hospital in critical condition and later transmitted to Mombasa hospital where he was admitted in the Intensive Care Unit( ICU).He succumbed to his injuries three days later.
The hearing of the case will continue on Thursday, July 27.
