Two men are receiving treatment at Gatundu Level Five Hospital in Kiambu County after they were shot by unknown men riding on a motorbike.

The two men were shot minutes after a land ruling was done by a Gatundu Law Courts in their favour.

While celebrating the ruling outside the court, the middle-aged men were shot on the legs and limbs before the motorbike that had two occupants fled on a crazy speed.

According to Francis Muhoho, the Kiranga location chief, the men are from Ndarugo village in the same Constituency.

Muhoho who spoke on phone revealed that the men who were cushioning themselves from heavy rains that are ongoing in the area were immediately rushed to the hospital which is meters away.
