A 29 year old clinical officer has been shot by bandits along the Tot-Chesongoch road in Marakwet East.
David Kipchumba was shot dead when riding a motorbike alongside three others at Chemukutet during night hours.
The two other people in the company of David saw one sustain gunshot wounds with the other one escaping unhurt.
Confirming the incident was Marakwet East police boss Vincent Kitili who said that from now hence forth people plying the Tot-Chesongoch road will be escorted by the police.
The death of David comes at a time when tension is high in the said area due to an attack on Tiaty residents.
Tiaty elders have since issued an ultimatum requesting their cattle’s to be returned.
The cattle’s are said to have been stolen by Marakwet rustlers.
