Governor Ali Roba has discredited explanation by Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) officers about circumstances under which two people were shot and killed in Mandera Monday morning.
Roba wants thorough investigation into the incident done and subsequent prosecution of officers found culpable, while cautioning that
The Governor said that information given by the officers that there was an explosion from inside the car before they started shooting at the occupants did not add up.
“I personally visited the scene in the company of several officials and found the car and nearby buildings riddled with bullets. There was no sign of an explosion,” said Roba who condoled with families of the victims.
The two were allegedly shot by the officers after their vehicle blocked the oncoming military car, prompting the soldiers to shoot at the occupants of the taxi.
Confirming the incident, the Mandera County Commissioner Fredrick Shisia said the military shot at the occupants after allegedly clogging their way at a road junction within the town.
