Motorist shoots and injures another one in a road rage incident in Nairobi

By Cyrus Ombati | Jan 1st 2015 | 1 min read

Nairobi, Kenya: Police are looking for a motorist who shot and seriously wounded another motorist in a road rage along Moi Avenue in Nairobi.

The victim had been hit from behind and when he alighted to establish why the accident happened, the other motorist shot him in the head before speeding off, police and witnesses said.

Police said the attacker was enraged after the other victim confronted him. Central OCPD Paul Wanjama said the attacker sped off after the gunshot sent other motorists and pedestrians scampering and no arrest has been made.

"We suspect he is a licensed gun holder or a thug but we are pursuing him," he said as he appealed to anyone who shot at the scene to surrender to police.

The victim was grazed in the head and is in stable condition, police said. Cases of road rage involving gun holders have been on the rise. They come in the wake of the campaign to tighten laws on issuance of guns to civilians and their usage.

Under the new controversial Security Laws Amendment Act 2014 the Firearms Act has been amended and the Firearms Licensing Board established.
