    Ida Odinga’s bodyguard murdered, and two others wounded.

    Published on

    On the morning of Friday, October 14, gunmen in Kisumu County shot and killed Mama Ida Odinga’s bodyguard.

    David Masaga, the chief of security for Mama Ida, and Karanja Muiruri, the regional police commander in Nyanza, both verified the death of the bodyguard.

    Police have begun an investigation, and early reports indicate that the officer was engaged in an encounter with an unidentified guy before a firefight broke out.

    According to eyewitnesses, he was shot near Odinga’s homestead in Riat, Kisumu West Sub-County.

    The bodyguard was reportedly seen at a bar in Riat, Kisumu West Sub-County, contradicting earlier allegations that he was at home.
    The head of the Kisumu police force has suggested that the officer’s identify would be made public after the family has been notified.

    Two people, a lady and a man, who were with the bodyguard when shots were fired were injured and taken to a local hospital.

    After the bodyguard was found dead, his corpse was taken to the mortuary at Jaramogi Oginga Teaching and Referral Hospital for an autopsy.

    As for Raila Odinga’s wife, reports said she was unharmed.
    However, Ida has not yet commented on the situation.
