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.
