Kenya: Thug Shoots Eldoret Pastor

A pastor shot by a thug on Tuesday night at his home is fighting for his life at Mediheal Hospital in Eldoret. Suleiman Kimani, a World Wide Gospel Churches of Kenya Reverend was shot in the chest as he entered his home in Baringo near Maili Nne at 11pm.

He had just seen off his visitors. Kimani is in the hospital's Intensive Care Unit awaiting surgery. Ruth Kimani said their 19-year-old son opened the gate, saw a man aiming two pistols at his father and raised the alarm.

The man ordered him to lie down but his father, responding to the screams, alighted from the car only to be shot. Eldoret police boss Erastus Muthamia said they are investigating the attack but no one has been linked to it.
