Banker killed by security guards in Mombasa

The family of David Wokabi, who was beaten to death by security guards in Mombasa, returned to the crime scene with his body to protest for justice and compensation.

David Wakobi, a banker at Stanbic Bank in Nyali died seven days after a brutal beating by five night guards from Solvit Security company, at Nyali Center on January 7. He was admitted in the Intensive Care Unit of Aga Khan Hospital in Mombasa at the time of his death.

The cause of the brutal beat down was because Mr. Wakobi reportedly urinated at the parking lot.

CCTV footage shows five guards advancing at the banker’s car as he was driving out of the parking lot. They then pulled him out and one guard can be seen striking him after which he falls down.

Police have since arrested two guards and charged them in connection with the murder. Police have launched a manhunt for three other guards who fled.

The family of Wakobi is however not having it and are demanding justice for the father of two.

In a video that is doing rounds on social media, the family, led by a close relative, are seen standing next to a casket draped at the same spot he was murdered.

“We brought this body for you to see because his blood was shed here, if they want to eat it let them eat because us (the family) have two children and a wife. He had a great responsibility, we are therefore asking the national government and the County government to give us justice because there is a 3-year-old and 2-year-old children who we don’t know who will take care of them,” says the family’s representative.
