A police officer attached to the counter terrorism unit at parliament has been shot under unclear circumstances.
Kapchebungai Mudashir was shot in the leg at the basement parking opposite Parliament Avenue yesterday at about 4:00pm. Kapchebungai was rushed to an unknown hospital in an ambulance.
According to sources that preferred anonymity, it is not yet clear how Kapchebungai was shot.
"They don't know where the bullet came from, but they just saw the man falling down. But there was no sound, and there [was] blood all over" the source told URN.
Parliament security officers confirmed the incident but declined to speak on the matter. Parliament's director of communications Chris Obore said that there was a shooting incident at parliament, but it was not worrying.
"There was an incident in which one police officer sustained an injury. He is receiving treatment and the condition is not worrying" said Obore.
Police spokesperson Emilian Kayima said that police is investigating the incident.
