Lands Chief Administrative Secretary Kimani Ngunjiri is on spot for allegedly shooting and injuring two people.
The former Bahati Member of Parliament is reported to have fired three times in the confrontation with a 60-year-old man in a row over a ½ piece of land in Kwa Tom village in Subukia Constituency.
Susan Murugi , the alleged owner of the piece of land claimed that the CAS who claimed to own her half an acre piece of land leading to the confrontation stormed the home on Monday, April 17.
She said Ngunjiri pulled the trigger and threatened to shoot her but turned the heat on her children after realizing that Murugi was not afraid of him.
“Ngunjiri alikuja saa kumi na mbili asubuhi nilikuwa pale kwa ng’ombe nikaona wameanza kubomoa, ndio nikateremka, nikaona amenionyeshea risasi. Sikuogopa, nikamwamia nipige risasi, hakunipiga, aligeukia watoto wangu,” she said.
She said her daughter who tried to intervene was injured in the scuffle.
“Wakati aliona hakupiga mtu risasi alchukua mti na kugonga huyu msichana wangu wah. Nikamuuliza tangu lini mheshimiwa utaendelea kunisumbua Mwaka huo mwingine ulikuja kwa shamba, ukanipeleka kortini,” the elderly woman said.
Ngujiri fired his gun after Murugi’s son William Ndung’u rushed to the scene and confronted him for manhandling his mother.
“Ngunjiri aimed his firearm at me and discharged a bullet. The bullet missed me and got another resident,” said Ndung’u.
Following the incident, police have taken the pistol and eight bullets for ballistic.
