I know the 2 people who want to kill me - NASA MP after bodyguard was shot dead last night

MP speaks after escaping assassination attempt

Kibunguchy spoke just hours after a daring assassination attempt on Sunday night.

The MP’s driver-cum-bodyguard was shot in the head at Soy Highway Motel along Eldoret–Kitale road by the gunmen who later fled in the legislator’s car.


“Personally, in my heart, I blame two people; I will not mention their names now but will reveal their identities in due time. I blame two people for causing the death of an extremely innocent person,” he said.

He did not give names of the said attackers but claimed they were wealthy people who doing business through forest resources in Western and Rift Valley region.

Kibunguchy, however, was adamant that he would not be intimated by “wealthy individuals”.

“There are some people with interests in our forest, and I’m putting them on notice, even if you kill Kibunguchy you will never get this forest. This forest belongs to our people, not to a few wealthy individuals,” he added

The MP denied the possibility that the night incident may have been a robbery, citing the fact that his attackers did not take anything from the driver after killing him.


He also eulogised the deceased as well-meaning person who was always jovial.
