A Malawian third year student at St Paul’s University in Kenya, Dennis Chirwa, was stabbed several times in the head and body. He died on the spot Saturday night.
According to reports in Standard Media of Kenya, Chirwa, a journalist who was also a correspondent for Nyasa Times and a son to Malawian High Commissioner to Kenya, retired Brigadier Marcel Chirwa was murdered near his college in Limuru.
He was robbed of his mobile phone and other personal effects.
His colleagues said they had been at a local bar watching football at about 7pm when the incident occurred.
The assailants escaped soon after the killing and no arrest has been made so far.
Kenyan Police said Sunday a hunt for those involved is ongoing and moved the body to the mortuary.
Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo said they are yet to know the motive of the murder but suspect there had been a fight between the deceased and his attackers.
“We were called and informed there was murder at a bar and when we arrived there we found the man had been stabbed all over the body,” he said.
The deceased colleagues have already recorded their statements.--Source: Standard Media
