Tension is still high following the killing of a Chinese after armed gangsters raided a mining company’s residential house in Nyatike, Migori county.
Following the attack, the Chinese nationals are now fleeing Migori gold mines.
The attack took place at Yuang Dong Kenya Mining Company premises leaving two other Chinese seriously injured in what is suspected to be a business rivalry in the region
The victim, Weekly Citizen has established, is Gu Ji Wu who died while being rushed for treatment in Kisumu. He is said to have resisted orders by the gang to surrender.
He died of excess bleeding from a gunshot that hit his lower abdomen. The second victim was identified as Li Shi Sheng while their colleague Chan Huang had injuries on his left eye and right hand.
The thugs took the watchmen hostage before breaking into their house. Huang who was awake at the time of the raid watched the thugs breaking into the house through a CCTV camera before they reached him while frog-matching one of their three Maasai watchmen.
One of the thugs wore a motorbike helmet on his head and carried a gun which he used to shoot Wu.
As the thugs entered the house in darkness, Huang could see a silhouetted figure raising his hands up in front of a gun-carrying man as they charged towards them before attacking the trio.
The attack on the Chinese came only three weeks after another gold dealer was attacked and killed in Masara area in Suna West.
It is claimed that some high-flying gold dealers in the region have hired crooks they use to silence other dealers they deem a threat to their businesses
