KDF Soldier Opens Fire on Boda Rider Who Dropped His Daughter

A Boda Boda rider narrowly escaped death on Thursday, after a man whose daughter he had just dropped at Syokimau in Machakos county, fired at him in rage.

Wycliffe Atendo, an online nduthi operator in Nairobi had received a request from a client to drop her at White house estate, in Syokimau.

Directorate of criminal investigation boss George Kinoti said Atendo picked the client, a 21-year-old lady outside a pharmacy along Kimathi street and set off for the 20-kilometre journey.

“The duo arrived at the agreed address and as the woman was about to pay him, a man quickly emerged from the gate and gave her a beating, before showing her into the compound,” Kinoti said.

As the boda boda man thought about his next move, the enraged man whipped out a firearm and fired at him instead, making him flee the scene.

The rider reported the incident at Syokimau police station and officers responded swiftly.

Kinoti said they established that the man was a military doctor who was armed with a glock pistol and 42 rounds of 9mm calibre.

The man was arrested and handed over to military police for further action, in accordance with military discipline.
