A postmortem conducted by government pathologist Johansen Oduor has deduced that Joseph Nyakundi could have been shot from outside the Toyota Axio.
Assa who is admitted at the Nairobi Hospital after developing high blood pressure complications told the police that he “accidentally” shot his son as he tried to retrieve his gun from a pouch.
But according to the autopsy report, “whoever shot him was standing outside the rear right back door of motor vehicle.”
This, the experts said also suggested that there was a confrontation leading up to the fatal shooting.
“The angle of shooting according to the projection could be ninety degrees, suggesting there was a confrontation,” the report read in part.
The report showed that the cause of death was chest injuries and hemorrhage due to a gunshot from a low-velocity firearm.
This deepens the mystery regarding the death of Nyakundi’s son.
