Grief As 17 Year Old Form 2 Boy Is Shot To Death By Police In Kuresoi South

A 17-year-old boy has succumbed to gunshot injuries at the Olenguruone Sub-county hospital in Kuresoi South. The boy is only known as Emmanuel was got in between running battles with police officers and locals who were protesting over the death of an infant in a police roadblock. 

Speaking to Chamgei FM, Olenguruone sub-county hospital boss said the 17-year-old died due to internal bleeding caused by the bullet lodged in his body. He reveals that doctors in the facility performed an emergency operation to remove the bullet but he couldn't withstand it.

"We are sorry to his family, we tried all we could to save him but the bullet that was lodged in his body caused massive damage that led to internal bleeding. The operation we performed was to remove the bullet but he succumbed moments later," he said.

The incident which paralyzed transport along the busy road for hours has caused an uproar among locals who are calling for immediate transfer of the police officers manning the Mulango Kiptagich roadblock. An infant lost his life at the roadblock as the said officers demanded a bribe to allow them to proceed to a Ten-week hospital where they were seeking treatment.

The death of the baby saw locals storm the roadblock and chased the officers who shot in the air to disperse them, unfortunately, many people were injured with gunshots and among them is the boy. The melee has thus coated two lives.
