New development in Deputy CJ Mwilu's driver shooting incident

The driver was shot two days to the repeat polls whose cases the DCJ was handling.

In addition to the deadly weapon, already two other suspects have been nabbed. This arrest brings the total number of suspects in the shooting to four after the immediate arrest of two in Nairobi’s Kawangware area.

On October 24, two days to the repeat polls, an unknown gunman shot and injured the driver of Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu.

The driver, identified as Police Constable Titus Musyoka, was shot in the evening outside Marsabit Plaza along Ngong Road in Nairobi.

Dagoretti OCPD Rashid Mohammed said the incident happened at 4.30pm and that Justice Mwilu was not in the car at the time.

The DCJ was at the time was handling a number of cases on the presidential polls that it nullified on September 1.

Earlier, two men were arrested in connection with the shooting of Justice Mwilu’s driver which the police initially described as a normal robbery attack before changing tune to a political assassination attempt.

The two suspects, aged between 18 and 22, were picked up by DCI officers from a house in Kawangware.

Sources said the DCJ told investigators the driver called her after the shooting and said the attackers had peeped inside the car, indicating they were looking for her.
