Woman Escapes Death In Gun Drama With Ex-Lover

 A female cashier who works at NHIF Nairobi and her two sons escaped death narrowly on Sunday morning when her jilted police officer lover shot at them several times at their house in Embakasi.

The jilted man, who works at JKIA, is said to have threatened to kill his lover of three years after the woman ended the relationship two months ago.

Francisca Mulinge said she survived death by a whisker, however her 21-year-old son Chrispus Makau was admitted with a fractured arm following the gun drama.

Makau suffered a fractured palm and wrist from a bullet that also grazed his right-hand fingers. Mulinge said the ex-lover had been threatening to kill her and also sent her abusive text messages.

On the fateful night, Otieno is said to have arrived at Mulinge’s house at around 7pm and asked about her whereabouts. He was informed by the househelp that Mulinge was not at home and he left with a promise to check on her later.

He returned to the house at around 12.30 am. He knocked on the door but Mulinge’s son, who was in the sitting room watching TV, declined to open it. At that point he started shooting into the sitting room and bedrooms through the windows. Mulinge and her two-year-old son survived the hail of bullets fired at them unhurt.

Yesterday, Mulinge denied allegations by Otieno that she had conned him out of Sh300,000, which he allegedly used to start a bar for her. She said she was not part of the business and she decided to kick Otieno out because of his unbecoming behavior.

David Otieno, 34, was arrested and  locked up at the Embakasi police station and will be charged in court for attempted murder and malicious damage to property.
