Rachel Shebesh speaks after her husband shot himself

By Fay Ngina | November 2nd 2017

Former Nairobi women Representative Rachel Shebesh’s husband Frank Ambundo Shebesh, is under investigation after he allegedly shot himself in the leg during a "safety precaution routine” in his house in Kilimani.

“We were all in the house, he was in the bedroom alone servicing his gun. We just heard a loud bang and when we went, we found that he had injured his leg,” said Mrs. Shebesh.

The victim who is a licensed gun owner was rushed to Nairobi Hospital with a bullet in his thigh. Police said that they were looking for other angles to establish if the shooting took place somewhere else after Mr Shebesh said the incident took place in the house.

“We are looking at all angles and if it is possible for one to shoot himself in such a place while conducting safety precautions of a pistol. Unless a miracle happened or he pulled the trigger while the weapon was in waist,” said a police officer.

Mrs. Shebesh said that the husband is no stranger to guns and that he services the regularly.

“He runs a shooting range where he trains people and so he is not a stranger to guns. This was an accident, a genuine mistake and it had nothing to do with politics or the political tensions in the country,” she said.
