Amnesty International Kenya director recovering well

20 December 2013, 10:16

Nairobi - Justus Nyang'aya, the director of Amnesty International Kenya, is now "out of danger" according to the international
human rights organisation.

Unknown assailants shot and injured the human rights defender on Wednesday night.

Nyang'aya was shot three times, including in the chest, at his home in Rongai in Nairobi, the capital.

A colleague at Amnesty International Kenya said that gunmen raided Nyang'aya's home and stole cash and valuables.

The incident is currently under a police investigation.

"Everyone at Amnesty International sends their best wishes to Justus and his family. We are all extremely thankful that he is now out of danger and we extend our very best wishes for a speedy recovery," Colm Ó Cuanacháin, Senior Director of Movement Building at Amnesty International, said.

He said Nyang'aya was currently in a stable condition.
