Nairobi, Kenya – An angry gambler murders the casino manager and a security guard before a group of gamblers kill him

It happened at the City View Bar and Restaurant Casino in Nairobi, Kenya. A Tanzanian gambler by the name of John Barnabas Mchanga was playing Roulette on the morning of Tuesday the 9th of February when he eventually lost his bankroll of 30,000 Kenyan shillings (about USD $300). Mchanga asked the casino manager, Winfred Mbuvi , to give him a line of credit so that he could win back his losses. The casino manager refused. Mchanga became noticeably angry, argued and verbally abused her before leaving the building. Mchanga returned shortly afterwards with a sword and murdered the casino manager. He also killed James Lutea, a security guard who tried to intervene. A second security guard, Kevin Ogada, was seriously injured when he also tried to intervene. While most of the gamblers at the casino ran for their lives, a group of them confronted Mchanga and chased him down the street where they cornered him and stoned him to death. By the time police arrived at the scene, Mchanga was already dead. During the past few years, the gambling industry in Kenya has experienced a boom with revenues reaching $20 million in 2014. The gambling industry has been growing at approximately 6 percent annually.
