Mathare MP Anthony Oluoch shot
Mathare Member of Parliament Anthony Oluoch was Sunday afternoon shot and injured as police dispersed youth who were protesting in Baba Dogo area, Nairobi.
Mr Oluoch, who was shot in the leg, was rushed to Nairobi Hospital where he was visited by opposition leaders led by Raila Odinga.
Addressing journalists at the hospital, Mr Odinga said Oluoch was shot in the presence of other opposition leaders.
“MP Oluoch was shot in our presence by police,” said Odinga.
The National Super Alliance (NASA) leaders had toured Mathare and Baba Dogo to condole with families and local residents after four people were killed by unknown assailants in the area in the wake of Sunday morning.
Bodies of the four were still lying at the scene of the incident at 10am on Sunday, November 19.
A confrontation ensued between the police and local residents who were trying to block security officers from accessing the bodies which were later moved to City mortuary.
While residents blamed the police for the killings, Nairobi Police Commander Japheth Koome dismissed the claims absolving security agencies from any blame.
Koome said security patrols would be increased in Mathare and Baba Dogo areas following the Sunday killings.
