The woman was felled in a dramatic shoot out that saw two other robbers killed.

Police said the three were among a six-man squad that has been terrorizing motorists along the Nakuru-Naivasha highway.

Naivasha deputy OCPD John Kwasa said the death of the three on Saturday should be a lesson to other gangsters.

Kwasa said the gang was planning to hijack a Nairobi-bound bus when they were ambushed by his team acting on a tip-off.

Police recovered a homemade gun, machete and several mobile phones.

The three bodies were taken to the Naivasha sub-county Hospital mortuary.

Motorists have been lamenting over the deteriorating insecurity along the route.
