Journalists from different media houses have been hiring his car while on assignments outside the town centre, since Kimani was on long leave.

The driver's side of the grey Toyota Fielder car had 10 clear bullet marks and the front right tyre was punctured.

Nyeri Central OCPD, Charles Rotich told reporters that police collected three spent cartridges at the scene of crime, saying that investigations had began.

“We are asking anyone who may have witnessed the shooting to come and talk to us to help unravel the incident,” Rotich added.

The incident also caused protests and fury on social media, with some pointing an accusing finger at agencies.
