A middle-aged man suspected to have shot a Kenya Forest Service (KFS) ranger with an arrow was charged before a Narok court on Monday.

Joel Kipyego alias Chuck Norri denied causing grievous bodily harm to KFS officer Victor Mwenda on October 4, 2019 at Kipchoge area in Narok South.

His plea to be released on bail/bond bore no fruits after Chief Magistrate Wilbroda Juma ordered his detention for three more days to allow police complete investigation.

The case will be heard on November 1 this year.
