Former Moyale MP Hon Philip Galma has been shot dead in his home Syokimau, Nairobi.
Police say four gunmen raided the home at about 2am as the former MP and his family slept and shot him dead following a struggle.
According to officers on the ground, the attackers were out to rob the family and fired gunshots when they met resistance.
Tension was high in Syokimau on Saturday morning as residents gathered ready to stage a protest over increased insecurity.
Last Saturday, Kabete MP George Muchai, his two bodyguards and a driver were shot dead in Nairobi Central Business District in an incident that has left the country in shock.
