The man who was shot eight times by a gun-wielding robber in Nairobi’s Kasarani area has been discharged from hospital.

Richard Muema, 32, had gone to his friend’s shop to buy credit when two robbers stormed in.

One of the gangsters brandished a gun and ordered him lie down. He complied but after the shopkeeper was shot, Richard attempted to confront the thug.

He slapped him on the back of his head but the man quickly turned around and fired at him eight times.

Just over a month later after the incident, Richard has left hospital and is set to continue recuperating at home.

He had been admitted at the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) where he underwent a number of surgeries to remove bullets that were lodged in his body.

Speaking after leaving hospital, he was thankful to the public for helping him to clear the hospital bill that came to Sh1.2million.

A paybill account had been created by his family and they received overwhelming support from the public in terms of contributions.

“The total bill came to Ksh.1.2 million which was catered for by the money the public contributed through an M-Pesa Paybill number established by my family,” said Muema.
