BREAKING: Shock As Senior Police Officer Shoots Magistrate In Makadara Law Court

According to police, Makadara Principal Magistrate Monica Kivuti was shot by a police officer during an active court session while delivering a ruling in a case involving the officer’s wife.

Other police officers present at the scene responded and fatally shot the senior officer, Chief Inspector Samson Kipruto, killing him on the spot.

Detectives are on the scene to investigate the incident, particularly the motive for the abrupt shooting.

However, it is believed that the officer shot at the magistrate after she refused to grant his wife’s bond. Detectives and the judiciary have yet to issue a statement on the situation.

The officer from Kisumu County traveled to Nairobi for the hearing on the case in which his wife was a suspect. He wanted the wife to be released on bond while the case was pending.

Police transferred the deceased’s body to the local morgue for autopsy and preservation.  

On the other hand, the magistrate and another member of the public who were injured in the incident are receiving medical attention.

As investigations continue, security personnel have closed off the law courts to the general public. ATPU officers are on the scene.
