Player Killed After He Murders Kenyan Casino Employees

This week a punter in the Eastleigh district of Kenya's capital, Nairobi,, murdered two casino employees with a sword after he was denied credit, before he was run down by a mob, then stoned and beaten to death.

John Mchanga was gambling at the City View Bar and Restaurant Casino in Eastleigh on Tuesday where he lost 30,000 shillings (around $300). Hoping he could continue playing and claw back his losses, Mchanga asked the casino management for a line of credit, which was denied.

Feeling angered at her rejection of his request for credit, Mchanga pulled out a small sword and murdered casino manager Winfred Mbuvi. Stepping in to help his colleague, security guard James Lutea was also stabbed to death by Mchanga while Kevin Ogada, another security guard, also tried to stop the crime and was slashed, although he survived.

With his bloodlust satisfied, Mchanga left the casino while an angry mob assembled and began chasing him down. Cornering the murderer, the mob began throwing rocks, killing the man before police arrived at the scene.

What can I say, it's just sounds crazy. It's really a tragic accident but I can't understand how the hell the gambler can enter the casino with a sword!! Even in Kenya! Why there aren't any guards or something?! I mean it just sounds ridiculous.

I found a local article about it here in a Kenyan newspaper where they say he used a "Somali dagger". So I looked that up on Google Image search and they look like the image below. That is nasty. At least justice was served quickly.

Yeah those are some nasty looking weapons Ed, but I guess they have to be if 2 man died from 3 stubbed. The way murderer has been punished is even more frightening maybe but no doubt it was a justice.

I don't know, but in my country (U.S.) I could walk into any casino with any type of weapon in my purse and/or under my coat, because although there is security, no one goes through our purses or coat pockets, nor do we have to walk through a metal detector or anything like that. That is done in most Government buildings, airports (of course), many concerts (although at concerts they are usually checking for alcohol and/or drugs), and even some schools. I suppose the casinos will be next someday.. What a frightening story.
