A shoot-out was on Thursday witnessed outside the Gatundu Law Courts in Kiambu County, leaving two family members nursing injuries.

The two, speaking to Citizen Digital from their hospital beds, said they had just left the courtroom to hear a case involving their late grandfather’s land.

Paul Mukui, one of the two, said the shooter was on a motorcycle and emerged just as they left the courtroom.

“Tulikuwa tumekuja hapa kortini Gatundu, na hiyo kesi ni kama tumewin, lakini kutoka hapo nje tulishtukia risasi mingi sana…nimevunjwa mguu side ya right na mkono ya right na mkono ya left nimepigwa risasi nne,” said Mukui.

“My cousin alipigwa risasi ya mbavu na mkono na tumbo…Ni hii kesi ya mashamba, juu mimi sijai kuwa na grudge na mtu yeyote…naona ni kama ni hii shamba imefanya tupigwe risasi, tungependa serikali iingilie.”

Mukui and his cousin were rushed to the Thika Level 5 Hospital where they’re receiving treatment.
