Cyrus Jirongo's daughter cheats death, son-in-law shot dead
Cyrus Jirongo, a former Lugari Member of Parliament, has narrated how boyfriend to his daughter was assassinated by unknown assailants as the girlfriend watched.
Appearing on Jeff Koinange show on Wednesday, June 22, Jirongo narrated how the assassins attacked the two while they were driving along Riara Road in Nairobi.
The former legislator said that two motorbike riders rode past their car and stopped in front of them. They then demanded that the American boyfriend to his daughter, Sally, hands over a laptop they were having.
The boyfriend asked why they should give them the laptop and the gunmen pulled a gun and pointed at Sally’s head.
The American boyfriend named Ford pushed Sally aside only for the gunmen to shoot him on the head.
“They turned the gun and pointed at my daughter. He then moved in and pushed my daughter out of the way of the barrel of the gun. They turned on this young man and just shot him,” Jirongo said.
Ford was rushed to the hospital but died.
His body was flown to America and his burial is happening in South Carolina.
