A man who survived the Kabete tragedy, where a Police Constable Benson Imbati shot dead 6 people before killing himself, has narrated how he cheated death.
Moses Mwea, 22, gave a blow by blow account of how he managed to save his life in a harrowing ordeal that left 7 people dead, including the wife of the cop.
The incident happened in the wee hours of Tuesday, December 7.
On the fateful day, Mwea narrates that he was taking a stroll with his friend when they came face to face with the gun-wielding cop.
According to him, his friend was the first to be shot. He says the killer cop hit him on the one side of the chest with the bullet exiting on the other end injuring him on his hand.
It is there that they scampered to safety but his friend was unable to run faster due to injuries he had sustained from the first shot.
“I then ran for safety, but when my friend tried to run, he was then shot on his chest. He did not have the running speed I had and was later shot on his head. That is how he died on the spot,” Mwea recounted.
He revealed that he retreated back to a homestead where funeral activities were on course.
It was there that he was accommodated by mourners even as he breathed a sigh of relief for surviving the fatal ordeal.
