Homa Bay County cabinet member shot dead! He was Executive Committee Member (CECM) for Transport and Infrastructure and was on Saturday gunned down by unknown men.
According to the publication, Philemon Dony Opar was shot dead at his petrol station in Kendu Bay town.
He was reviewing the day’s activities when he met his death.
Reports indicate that his assailants had been trailing him for a while and they didn’t steal anything from him.
Opar vied for the Karachuonyo parliamentary seat in 2017 but he lost to Andrew Adipo.

Police have launched a manhunt for Opar’s killers even as residents suspect foul play.

Luckily, Amek was rushed to Homa Bay County Referral Hospital Mortuary for treatment by neighbors who heard the gunshots.
