DCI summons Embakasi East MP candidate Mureithi over shooting of two men at rally

Police have summoned Embakasi East MP candidate Francis Mureithi over the shooting of two men in Vumilia, Embakasi, Nairobi, on Sunday. The incident took place during a JP rally. Mureithi, alongside his bodyguards, will appear before BuruBuru DCI chief Jeremiah Ikiao today. Police yesterday cleared Senator Mike Sonko’s bodyguards of wrongdoing in connection with the shooting. Ikiao and a team of investigators established that Sonko and his team had left at the time the two men were shot and injured. Sonko left at 3pm while the incident took place at 5.30pm. The men were taken to the Mama Lucy Hospital, treated and discharged. One victim sustained a bullet wound on the thigh. Doctors could, however, not confirm whether a swelling sustained by the second victim was a result of gunshots. Reports indicate that there was a scuffle as youths pushed and shoved.
