Woman shot on suspicion of being fugitive cop narrates her ordeal
The 20-year-old woman shot on Friday at Kiminini on alleged suspicion that she was Carolyne Kangogo, has broken her silence.
Phanice Chemutai, who was shot by Ken Muyundu, a licensed firearm holder, narrated her ordeal from her hospital bed at the Kitale County Referral Hospital.
Chemutai said she had never met Muyundo before the ill-fated day and was headed home late evening from Kitale where she had gone to help her sister acquire a birth certificate.
She decided to get a room in Kiminini to beat curfew.
She says she first met Muyundo near her lodging when he asked for her number.
It was during a later meeting with the Muyundo that she was shot.
The suspect will be taken to court to face two charges on Monday attempting murder and unlawful wounding.
They called on the government to speed up investigations over the matter.
On the fateful day, according to a police report obtained by Citizen Digital, the woman, Chemutai of Kaboiywo village, had allegedly been bugging Ken Muyondo, a licensed firearm holder, to meet in the market.
According to the report, Mr Muyundo reported the incident to the Kiminini police station, where he said he suspected the caller to be the rogue cop and himself to be her next victim.
Mr. Muyondo is said to have fired a single shot during the planned meeting at the said market to warn the said woman.
The woman would be arrested shortly after.
“The OCS arranged a team and laid a trap and the lady met with the reportee who fired a single shot to scare her, and she was arrested,” the police report said.
The officers would also discover a bullet wound on her lower abdomen while frisking her.
She was then transferred to Kitale County Referral Hospital for treatment
