We aren’t sure what the details are yet. The police are saying it was over a private love triangle. Either way, the timing is not good.
The Daily Nation has just released the following:
The Orange Democratic Movement MP was shot dead in Eldoret by a policeman today, in what local security officials said was a love triangle. The policeman also shot a woman who was rushed to hospital. Eldoret police boss Muinde Kioko said their reports showed that “an officer had shot a civilian over a love triangle”. The incident took place shortly after 10am in the outskirts of Eldoret town. Mr Too is the second ODM MP to be shot dead in as many days following the murder of the Embakasi MP Mugabe Were on Wednesday morning. There is panic in Eldoret and Kericho towns as news of the MP’s death spread.
The ODM leaders have also addressed a press conference where they condemned the killing of the MP.
BBC quotes ODM leader Raila Odinga as saying to AFP “The second killing of an MP belonging to Orange Democratic Movement is part of a plot to reduce our majority in parliament,”
