His name is Mohammed Ahmed Kanyare. He is a 32-year-old young man who had been deployed by IEBC at Toweed polling centre in Eldas subcounty, Wajir county to serve as a presiding officer in the just concluded 2022 general elections. This man went at the polling station with all his legs but unfortunately,he will be walking with only one leg.

On August 11 at around 10pm, Mohammed had gone to submit election results at the tallying centre when suddenly someone switched off lights in the hall they were in and unknown person shot him three times in his right leg. This is after he had been asked to alter form 34A in favour of a certain candidate but he declined.

He was rushed to Wajir county refferal hospital but according to proffessional doctors, they advised amputation of the leg as the only way of survival. His leg has been cut and the man is seeking for justice. It is very sad. See full video below of him narrating on what happened that day.
