City restaurant owner K’Osewe stable but has bullet stuck in abdomen

The owner of K’Osewe Ranalo Foods restaurant William Osewe is in a serious but stable condition at the Aga Khan hospital.

Mr Osewe is figting for his life after being shot two times in the stomach and on the neck by a licensed firearm holder in Kasarani on Thursday.

A scan revealed that a bullet of 9mm calibre is lodged in his lower abdomen and he was scheduled for an operation to remove it on Friday.

After the 2.30pm shooting, the attacker Mr Tom Oywa Mboya called a senior police officer in Kasarani and told him that he was driving to the station.

In his report, Mr Mboya said that Mr Osewe had confronted him at an eatery called Hagon, accusing him of having an affair with his wife.

According to some witnesses, the two were seen walking away from the hotel as they argued. Moments later, the attacker was seen walking back to the parking after three gunshots were heard.

Mr Osewe fell down in the middle of the road, writhing in pain. He called one of the people around and requested him to bring his car so that he could be rushed to the hospital.

Mr Osewe’s wife who is out of the country is expected to be back anytime.

Police confirmed that the suspect is still in custody and they are yet to decide the charges to be preferred against him.

He is likely to be charged with attempted murder and wounding a guard.
