    “The Kitale incident led to a victim’s death; Brigadier (RTD) Moses Yator, who was killed by a gunshot. They stole mobile phones, cash, among other personal items,” read a statement from the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution.

    Reports indicated that on the fateful night, Yator, who doubled as the the chairman of Kitale Golf Club, was waylaid by the two while living the club at around 11 p.m.

    The two men shot him from the rear-view window before making away with cash  and other variables.

    Speaking to the press, Yator’s wife Esther Nandutu, recounted that on March 3, 2018, the two were leaving the club when the thugs ambushed them.

    “One of them commanded us to alight from the vehicle and hand over all our belongings. Immediately my husband identified himself as a security officer.

    “Within a minute a shot was fired from behind the car, and he started screaming in pain,” she stated.

    She narrated how the criminal dragged her out the vehicle and ordered her to lie on top of her dying husband before taking off.
