Sonko’s bodyguards to be probed after shots fired at crowd jostling for free unga

Bodyguards of Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko are among those to be questioned after two people attending a political rally in Pipeline, Nairobi, were shot and injured.

The senator was with Embakasi East Jubilee candidate Francis Mureithi at the rally, which became chaotic as people started scrambling for goodies from the politicians.

The two victims sustained bullet wounds in the legs during the Sunday incident.

Police said it is yet to be established who fired the shots but anybody who had a gun there would be questioned.

During the rally, Mr Mureithi was seen distributing packets of flour to attendants.

The matter is being investigated by Directorate of Criminal Investigations.

Detectives were on Tuesday interviewing people who may have witnessed the shooting.
