Parade protest


Four Killed, 3 Injured And Senator Mutula Kilonzo Junior's Car Damaged In Masimba Demonstrations

Four people were on Thursday killed and three others nursed injuries during demonstrations at Masimba in Kajiado County.

The protesters, who had blocked the Mombasa-Nairobi Highway, were demonstrating against the increase in human-wildlife conflict in the region.

A female teacher from Mashuru Sub-County in Kajiado County was last week murdered by stray elephants, precipitating the June 2 demonstrations.

The Nairobi-Mombasa Highway was barricaded for the whole Thursday morning as the protesters demanded answers from local authorities and the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS).

Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Junior stated that his vehicle was badly damaged while cruising along the scene.

“I missed death by a whisker at Masimba. Two stones thrown at me smashed my vehicle’s window,” he said on Twitter.

Four people succumbed to gunshot injuries, with three loosing their lives on the spot and succumbed to his injuries while receiving treatment at the Makindu Sub-County Hospital.

The hospital’s superintendent Dr. David Kasanga reported the four fatalities to this desk.
