In Riruta, a man reacting to the screams of a distraught robbery victim was unlucky enough to be killed.

George and Jackline Omondi were happily sleeping in their bed at 5 a.m. yesterday.
Loud and agonizing screams outside their home interrupted their sleep.
In order to help the victim, Omondi leapt from his bed and dashed for the door.
After a few minutes, his wife, Jackline, went outside to see what was going on .
She observed a swarm of people gathered around a body that was splayed on the ground.
When she got closer, she discovered that the man was her 48-year-old husband, who had just hurried out of their house to help a robbery victim.
Knife-wielding criminals who had taken his phone and were about to empty his pockets when Omondi interrupted their celebration had approached the robbery victim.
Unfortunately, as the criminals set their victim loose, they stabbed Omondi twice in the stomach and fled.

They will make them pay for the horrible murder of hero George Omondi, who risked his own life to save the life of a fellow countryman.
