In Eldoret, police have detained the club manager who is suspected of killing Ida Odinga’s bodyguard in Kisumu.

Ayub Gitonga, the head of the Uasin Gishu Police, confirmed the arrest and said that Collins Okundi, the suspect, would be charged with murder tomorrow.

Mr Gitonga said: “I can confirm that our officers have arrested the suspect in the shooting that took place in Kisumu.”

Mr. Okundi, who has been missing since Friday, was employed at Kisumu’s Signature Level 4, a well-liked entertainment venue.

The suspect was found in possession of a Jericho pistol, one magazine, and seven rounds of ammunition, according to a report issued by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), Eldoret West Sub County.

At Marilyn Marion Ouma’s home, Mr. Okundi is accused of killing corporal Barrack Oduor Onyango with a shot to the head.

At around 3.30 am, Mr. Onyango, Mr. Donar Kajwang, and Ms. Ouma returned to her home close to Uzima University. This is when the incident took place.

Part of the statement recorded by the woman at the centre of the saga read: “Upon reaching the estate, Mr. Okundi appeared and a scuffle ensued between Marylyn, Kajwang and Mr Onyango.”

Mr. Okundi apparently jumped on Mrs. Odinga’s bodyguard during this process and disarmed him. He then fired the policeman twice, killing him instantly in the head and leg.

Mr. Kajwang was shot in the leg during the subsequent altercation and was taken to Aga Khan Hospital in Kisumu, where he is said to be in stable condition. The gun is then alleged to have been taken off by the suspect.
