Cousin To Governor Korane Linked To Former Finance Executive Shooting

Police investigations have revealed a cousin to Garissa governor Ali Korane was the mastermind behind the shooting of former finance executive Iddi Mukhtar.

It emerged that a plot to eliminate the former county executive and a city lawyer was hatched because they had planned on challenging the academic qualifications of the Garissa governor Ali Korane.

Three men believed to be hired assassins have been arrested and vehicle that was allegedly used impounded at a garage in Ngara. The vehicle had been repainted and the registration numbers changed.

A source with close ties to the police told the Star that they had information that a close relative of the governor planned and financed the shooting but they were probing the governor to find out how much he knew in relation to the incident

“What we know is that people close to the governor planned and financed the crime. We want to know what he knows about it,” a detective said.

Mr Mukhtar was shot on the head at a Mall in Kileleshwa and was admitted at the Nairobi Hospital. He had reported to the police that he had been receiving threatening messages.

He was unfairly dismissed and the court awarded him Sh. 50 million for unfair dismissal
