According to a report from the BBC, a gambler who was refused credit at the City View Bar and Restaurant Casino in Nairobi’s Eastleigh district left the property only to return later with a sword and then kill two employees.

The report said that fellow gamblers witnessed the crime and eventually chased the perpretrator down. They stoned him to death in a nearby street. The entire incident stemmed from a $300 loss at the casino.

“The information we have is that he first attacked a female manager who declined to lend him money to continue gambling and that is when he went out to fetch a sword and slashed her to death,” Nairobi Police chief Japheth Koome said, according to capitalfm.co.ke. “He then slashed a security manager who tried to intervene and killed him.”

Kenya’s casino gambling market is estimated to be worth $20 million.
