A visibly shaken Muthoni when speaking to the press revealed that the assailant was their step-son who is well-known to them and the villagers.

Bush

“I was tending to the farm when I heard a strange noise coming from the bush and shortly after I saw Ephantus Muilwa bent down with a rifle aiming at me and his father,” she said.

According to Muthoni, when Muilwa realised that they were aware of his presence, he ordered, “Say your last words before I gun you down!”

Ephantus then cocked his rifle and took aim at his father but the rifle jammed before he could open fire. Seconds later, a loud bang was heard but no one was injured as the couple proceeded to take cover from the attacker.

Threats

Muthoni further stated that, following the botched attempt, Muilwa fled the scene with the gun in a sack and jumped on a waiting boda boda.

“This is not the first time that a commotion with the young man has occurred. He blames me for his father chasing away his mother and he has been issuing death threats to me and my husband ever since,” she added.
