Cabinet Secretary Aden Duale dismisses reports that Kennedy Onyango was shot 8 times, says he was only shot with one bullet

Published on

Cabinet Secretary in Charge of Defense Aden Duale has refuted claims that there was a resident who was shot eight times.

Aden Duale clarified, refuting reports claiming that an individual was shot eight times. Saying that the victim was struck by only one bullet, contradicting earlier accounts of multiple gunshot wounds.

There were two incidents; there was a young 12-year-old boy in Rongai. My condolences to him and his family, and it was not 12 bullets; it was only one bullet.

And the other young man in Mathare was shot, but he is still in the hospital. If you can, please help us find the person who was shot 12 times… because we checked all the post-mortem
.” Aden Duale said.

He, however, shared his condolences with the family and friends, admitting that none of those who were shot deserved it.

All the lives lost, whether they are 39, 25, or 1, were too many and unfortunate and should not have happened.” Duale said.

What Happened to Kennedy Onyango

Kennedy Onyango, a 12-year-old boy was tragically killed during anti-tax protests in Rongai last week,

He was reportedly shot eight times as the protests took an ugly turn in a night riddled with violence, gunfire, and looting.

The late 12-year-old Kennedy Onyango Ouma, who tragically lost his life in Rongai last Thursday during protests, succumbed to a fatal bullet wound. This was confirmed by Dr. Peter Ndegwa, the government pathologist who conducted the postmortem at Ongata Rongai Sub-County Hospital Funeral Home, confirming that the bullet had shattered his arteries and punctured his lungs.

When are Police men allowed to use Fire arms

The police shall use firearms when less extreme measures are inadequate and for two main purposes:

To save or protect the life of the officer or another person; and
to defend themselves or another person against an impending threat of life or serious injury.

When an officer intends to use a firearm, they shall identify themselves and give a clear warning of their intention to use the firearms.

They shall provide sufficient time for the suspect to observe the warning, except where doing so would place the officer or another person at risk of death or serious harm or if it would be clearly inappropriate or pointless in the circumstances.


Despite that, a Kenyan police officer must make every effort to avoid the use of firearms, especially against children.
