KBC Journalist Shot Dead At Her Home

Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC) journalist, Betty Mutekhele is dead.

The video editor was shot dead by thugs at her home in Ololua, Ngong in the late hours of Wednesday, April 7.

According to reports, Mutekhele was shot by the thugs after she encountered three armed robbers who entered the gate with her, ordered the children to lie down and demanded money.

Two of the thugs took her upstairs as one of them manhandled the husband.

"The husband can’t even explain what transpired, he just heard gunshots," said one anonymous source.

Her colleagues at the station mourned her as a dedicated and talented journalist.

"Rest in peace our video editor Betty, God will answer... best video editor in our newsroom," KBC radio Taifa presenter Mathias Momanyi stated.

"Last night we lost our colleague, allegedly through murder and it's devastating. Rest in peace friend. Everyone at KBC is still in shock," fellow KBC journalist Bonnie Musambi posted on social media. 

"This Ngong should be disbanded it's becoming a nuisance. Betty was larger than life. I am saddened by her death. May those thugs have no peace.

"My classmate, my chama mate, my best friend, what kind of news is this???? I can't believe that you are no more Betty," said Pauline Lillian on the comment section.

The news comes as the body of a veteran journalist and National Lands Commission official Jennifer Wambua, was found dumped at Ngong Forest, three days after she was reported missing on Wednesday, March 10.

Investigations established that Wambua was strangled to death by hands and her remains dumped in the forest.
