A DCI detective who was shot by a civilian at Quiver Lounge along Thika Road on July 2, 2021, has died.
Constable Festus Musyoka succumbed to gunshot injuries at Nairobi Hospital on Tuesday.
Musyoka, who was attached to Starehe Police Station, had been hospitalised since July after he was shot in the neck during an altercation with a reveler, Dickson Mararo.
Also injured in the shooting were Musyoka’s colleague Lawrence Muturi, and Felistas Nzisa, who were treated and discharged.
Musyoka who was in critical condition was taken to Nairobi Hospital and later transferred to a hospital in Ngong, then to another in Karen then back to Nairobi Hospital, where he passed away.
Starehe police boss Julius Kiragu told the star, “He had been in a coma…”
Other officers privy to Musyoka’s condition said he had been in ICU for a while but had started to recover.
“He had been on feeding tubes and of late he had started to regain his speech,” said an officer.
Following the shooting, Dickson Mararo faced three counts of attempted murder.
He denied the charges and was released on a cash bail of Sh5 million.
