A former Kenyan Senator is nursing serious injuries after he was attacked by thugs at the Globe Cinema roundabout on Tuesday night in Nairobi CBD

In a statement, the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) said muggers accosted the former legislator who represented a coastal county between 2017-2022 at around 9 pm as he walked from Kirinyaga road where he had gone to buy a shirt, to his rented room in Ngara.

"Police officers based at Parklands police station who were out on patrol, spotted the badly injured man who had managed to walk to the Fig Tree - Kipande road junction and rushed to his aid," said DCI.

They immediately rushed him to the Agha Khan hospital, where he is currently receiving treatment.

The Senator's name is yet to be released.
