Two people are admitted to Mama Lucy hospital after they were allegedly shot by Senator Mike Sonko’s bodyguards.

The two suffered bullet injuries in the thigh and arm following a scuffle at Vumilia village in Nairobi’s Outering Road on Sunday.

Nairobi DCI chief Ireri Kamwende said police are investigating the circumstances that led to the shooting.

Investigations indicate that the two were among hundreds of youth who had attended the senator’s political event.

Reports indicate that there was a scuffle as youths pushed and shoved while seeking to receive handouts from the Nairobi governor aspirant.

Buru Buru DCI chief Jeremiah Ikiao on Monday led a team of investigators to the scene as police swung into action.

The legislator has neither confirmed nor denied whether the said men are his bodyguards or not.

He had also earlier on in the day handed out unga to ‘akina mama’ courtesy of his rescue team.
