Meet Bungoma Police Officer Who is Living With Three Bullets in His Body

Life has never been the same for a Bungoma police officer since he was shot three times on diverse dates while on duty. His cry for justice has landed on deaf ears but he is not giving up any time soon.

Speaking to Nation Africa, the officer whose name has been withheld for fear of being profiled, said he has gone through a lot of hardship in seeking medical care and also be exempted from tax.

He was first shot in 2008 and nine years later got shot again twice. He survived all these horrific incidents but the bullets lodged in his leg, head and stomach are yet to be removed surgically.

The cop has been visiting top bosses for help in getting tax exemption certificate but all the vetting process he has attended none has come out successful. The last one being in Eldoret last year and an appeal in Turkana in October have not yielded anything.

“Am asking the CS Matiang’i through his Principal Secretary and Inspector General to help me get tax exemption so that I can fund my medical bills efficiently... There are several instances where I have been asked money whenever I visit medical centres despite presenting my NHIF card,” he said as quoted from a video uploaded by the media house.

The officer is currently active in the job and according to him, he is still young to retire. He is also not wishing to leave the forces as he feels he may not be able to foot his family needs.
