Broad Day-light killing in Kisumu City.




A man was gunned down on Saturday morning in the presence of his family in Polyview Estate of Kisumu City.

The man identified as Peter Otieno Ogallo died in cold blood after he was allegedly shot thrice in his chest by Daniel Yona Jaoko, who is the manager of Ray Green Hotel in Nyamasaria.

Peter Otieno was quickly rushed to Avenue Hospital for treatment, unfortunately, he did not make it, he succumbed a few moments later.

The deceased worked at the Modern Coast Bus, Kisumu Branch as the manager. 

It is reported that Jaoko had dropped his girlfriend by the name Vivian Achieng Meresa who stays in the same compound as Otieno during the 5 am incident in Polyview Estate.

County police commander Benson Maweu affirmed the incident and reported that Jaoko and his girlfriend have been arrested over the killing. They are being held at Kondele police station, awaiting further instigations regarding the case.

The reason behind the killing is however petty and undeserved. The deceased was shot as he tried to remove his Nissan matatu from the parking but was blocked by another vehicle – a black Jeep that belonged to Jaoko. “When Otieno approached Jaoko to allow him to remove the vehicle, he instead withdrew his gun and shot him,” County Police reported.

Speaking to Star on phone, Maweu said that two bullets went through the left chest of Otieno seriously damaging his lungs leading to his death.


Ceska pistol with 15 rounds of ammunition was recovered when the police arrested the suspects and another 42 rounds of ammunition at Jaoko’s house.

Jaoko was also found with firearm licensed issued in 2012. Maweu said Jaoko had not complied with the directive issued by Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’ i on firearm holders.

Incidences of gun killings have become rampant all over in the country. Just yesterday a police officer shot himself dead in the mouth for unknown reasons.

Elsewhere in January, an AP committed suicide by shooting himself in the head moments after he shot and seriously injured his girlfriend in Naivasha.
