British man in ICU after being petrol bombed in Kilifi

10 May 2016, 11:31

Kilifi - A group of suspected squatters hurled a petrol bomb inside the car of a British man in Kilifi County and left him to burn.

The incident happened on Saturday during a protest against white landowners in the region.

David Taylor, whose family is reported to have lived in Kilifi for over a century, sustained severe burns and is currently admitted to the Mombass Hospital Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

The Star reports that the attack came just a few hours after police destroyed houses owned by squatters who have encroached on Taylor neighbour’s land.

According to Standard, the protesting squatters also tried to burn down a hotel under construction after attacking Taylor.

Such racially-motivated attacks have not been reported in the country before.
