Eight suspected robbers were shot dead by police in Industrial Area last night and five home-made guns and knives recovered.
Makadara OCPD Nehemiah Langat says the gang was on a robbery mission in Mukuru slums at around 8 pm when they were ambushed by police officers.
He says the same gang was responsible for robbery incident on Monday, where one person was killed.
Mukuru slum is one of the biggest informal settlement in the country with thousands of jobless youth.
Just last week three suspected robbers were shot dead in Westlands, Nairobi.
