NAIROBI: A police officer has died after being hit on the chest with a catapult-propelled stone during Thursday’s anti-government protests in Kisumu County in Kenya.
Ben Oduor, who was attached to Keroka Police Station in Nyamira County, died at the Aga Khan Hospital’s intensive care unit (ICU) on Thursday night.
Nyanza Regional Police Commander Noah Mwivanda said the corporal was hit by people who used a giant homemade catapult and stones as they engaged the police in running battles.
