Kenya Navy soldier shoots dead boda boda rider at Mtongwe Barracks

A Kenya Navy officer has shot dead a boda boda rider, identified as Leonard Komora, at the Mtongwe Navy Barracks.

19-year old Komora was said to have gone to pick a passenger in the military compound when he was gunned down on grounds of trespassing a restricted area.

The incident took place at around 6.45am and the deceased's body was later taken to Coast General Provincial Hospital.

Komora's mother, Martha Njeri Munene, complained to the press after she was blocked from seeing her only son's body.

"This is unfair. They have killed my son for no good reason. He was my only son. He was the one providing for me," she lamented.

Soldiers at the Mtongwe Barracks are usually on high alert after several incidents of attempted terrorist activities in the area.

In June this year, two suspected terrorists accidentally blew themselves while making a bomb at a house in Likoni, which is close to the Mtongwe Navy Barracks.
