When trying to scare the demonstrators, a speeding fire engine crushed Mary Mwangangi to death. Ngilu escaped by inches after she was shoved aside by her bodyguard.
Area MP, Makali Mulu also escaped death by a whisker when protesters roughed him up after mistaking him for an officer of the County Government.
Mulu’s bodyguard was forced to shoot in the air to scare away protesters who were baying for his blood. The MP was whisked to a nearby building where he stayed under heavy security until police dispersed the protesters.
