Nairobi — A driver to Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu was on Tuesday evening shot and seriously injured on Nairobi's Ngong Road.

Nairobi Police chief Japheth Koome says the Police Constable identified as Titus Mutiso was attacked near Marsabit Plaza where he had been sent by the DCJ to buy flowers.

"We have launched an investigation and we are looking for the criminals who shot the DCJ's driver," Koome told Capital FM News on telephone.

Witnesses told police the driver was attacked by a man on a motor cycle who also grabbed his pistol loaded with 15 bullets and sped off.

"It happened so fast, the guy just jumped off the motorbike and sprayed him with bullets," another police officer said, quoting a witness.

The officer is admitted to the Nairobi Women's Hospital for emergency treatment.
