The lady identified as Georgina Were was shot in her derriere as she ran back in her house in Manyatta away from the violence on the streets.

Were was rushed to Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital where she has been receiving treatment.

A report by the Standard indicated that the hospital’s chief executive officer Juliana Otieno mentioned that it was safer for the woman to live with the bullet.

According to Mr Otieno, the 27-year-old may never walk again if the bullet is removed because it is dangerously close to her spinal cord.

He further noted that Were will live normally after the wound in her rear back heals in six months.

Were is among hundreds of other Kenyans across the country nursing serious injuries following the post elections violence.
