Big Five - PwC man murdered

A PricewaterhouseCoopers manager was murdered by gunmen last week while on holiday in Kenya.

Tahir Qureshi, 31, was shot in Nairobi on Monday last week after a mugging went tragically wrong. Married for five years, Qureshi and his wife Shazma were expecting their first child in January.

The CIMA and ACCA-qualified member of PwC’s insurance and investment division, who was also an adviser to the Prince’s Trust, had returned to his native Kenya for the wedding of his brother Sarmad, who works in Ernst & Young’s tax department.

Qureshi, who friends described as ‘hard-working and lively’, had dropped off relations by car when he found himself blocked in by the gunmen.

Staff at PwC in London, and at Neville Russell’s City and Ilford offices where Qureshi used to work, were struggling to come to terms with the news of his killing. A PwC spokeswoman said: ‘Tahir was a very popular and valued member of the division. He will be sorely missed.’
