Notorious Dandora-based jailbird Yutman Mgaza Wadando alias “Eddy” was among 2 thugs that were shot dead by police on Monday, January 16, 2023.
Police fatally gunned down the two gunmen after they shot and injured a 33-year-old man in the Kabarage area of Dandora.
Eddy is not new to media headlines.
The street gangster never shied away from bragging about his crime sprees on social media.
Neither was he fazed when fierce cops warned him about his crooked ways. He instead dared the cops to cross his path.
Eddy was part of the dreaded “Wadando” gang.
His trademark brand on social media was taking photos with his face hidden.
He was put on the police radar for two years and was constantly advised to quit crime, but he never heeded any of the cautions.
He reminded him that some of his closest crime partners had already been gunned down and he was the only one remaining.
At the time, the infamous gangster was rumoured to be recruiting a new team of young boys and girls.
“Wewe endelea tu but one day it will rain heavily,” Hessy wa Dandora wrote in a Facebook post.
A police source says that they believe Eddy was working under a group of well-established individuals who benefited from his criminal ways.
They used to bail him out whenever he was arrested.
One year ago, the robbery with violence suspect was severely shot during a raid but managed to escape from the scene with bullet wounds.
Efforts to track him down never bore any fruits, until Sunday when police cornered the deceased.
Eddy was in the company of a fellow Wadando gang member.
The duo even injured some members of the public during their evening stealing spree, which caught the attention of members of the public, who quickly alerted the police.
It emerged that the two also had a gun and were using it to threaten civilians before stealing their valuables and money.
One of the injured men is fighting for his life at the Mama Lucy Hospital.
Police recovered two homemade guns and two motorbikes from the scene.
The bodies of the deceased persons were moved to the City morgue awaiting identification by their kin.
