14 Years Later, Kericho Man Survives With Two Bullets Lodged In His Chest

A 37 year old man identified as Collins Kiprono of Telanet village, Kericho county has been living a borrowed life for the past 14 years with two bullets lodged deep in his chest.


In an interview with a local media house, Collins painfully narrated how his life changed in a blink of an eye after two stray bullets hit him in the streets of Kericho during the 2007/2008 post election violence that rocked various parts of the country. The bullets were fired by police officers who were allegedly trying to disperse a group of demonstrators in Kericho town.


He further went on and explained how his life changed ever since that fateful day and the burden of a worsening health as each day goes by.

"I cannot stand up straight each time I wake up in the morning. I have to wait for several minutes for my back muscles to relax on their own before I can stand up and walk. I now walk with a slight hunch," he tearfully narrated.

The father of three is now appealing for the government or even well wishers to come to his aid as he fears for the worst.
