More victims who were shot in Majengo slums continue to emerge just a few days after the protests that lasted two days.

Sam Ingutia says his uncle is lying helpless at the Kenyatta National Hospital after he was shot on the back by police officers in Shauri Moyo.

Ingutia says his 42 year old uncle who was on Tuberculosis medication was hit when he was coming from lunch in Burma area.

“I was with my uncle on that fateful Friday.  I had gone to his place to give him money for food. he instead told me that he wanted to eat outside. So i took him to Burma to eat. On his way back home from lunch he was hit by a bullet near the Babptist Church in Shauri Moyo,” narrates Ingutia.

“After he was hit, good Samaritans took him to a nearby clinic for First Aid before he was taken to KNH. At KNH, he was admitted but doctors have refused to attend to him because we lacked some Ksh. 20,000,” he says.

Two people were shot dead in the Thursday and Friday skirmishes.

Ingutia says for five days now doctors at the Kenyatta National Hospital have refused to attend to his uncle since they are unable to raise Ksh. 20,000 to help him get medication.

As Ingutia struggles to raise money for medication, Daniel Mutiso another victim is walking with a bullet lodged in his arm trying to seek justice.

Majengo residents claim that about seven people were shot dead in the protests that were caused by an alleged brutal murder of a 24 year old boy in the area.

A four year old is also admitted at KNH. Baby destiny was shot in the head while in school at the NECI Educational Center.
