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.
