Three people, including a 73-year-old woman, were shot during NASA demonstrations in Migori town on Friday.

They were shot after demonstrators moved about 700 metres from the IEBC’s office to Posta Grounds.

A crowd had been preparing to burn two coffins with dogs inside, representing IEBC CEO Ezra Chiloba and acting Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i.

Riot police fired live bullets and tear gas at the crowd hitting Boniface Ombima, 32, a boda boda rider taking food to pupils at Babyshine Academy.

“I was taking lunch to pupils stuck at the school during lunch hour when a bullet hit me on right leg. I noticed blood and bystanders shouted that I had been shot.”

He spoke to journalists at Migori Level Four Hospital where he was taken.

The granny was rushed to St Joseph Mission Hospital and the third person to Akidiva Hospital in Migori town.

Motorists parked PSVs at Migori police station while business owners kept their doors locked.
