This rumour is confirmed true and is of high priority – here's why:
The two attackers armed with AK-47 rifles shot two traders at the ever-busy junction of Libya Market and got away with an unknown amount of money from Sawa Express. The robbery happened in broad daylight a few meters away from Munuki Police Station but there was no quick response from the police. The police and military soldiers are at the scene investigating the incident. The two injured traders, a man and a woman, were ice vendors and were apparently hit by stray bullets as the robbers were indiscriminately shooting into the market during their escape. According to eyewitnesses, the injured were in critical condition and were rushed to Juba Teaching hospital by the police but unfortunately died.
