Shocking Photos of Omtatah Attack
Dear fellow Kenyans: I hope you are well. Today I release some of the not so gross pictures showing the brutality that was visited on Okiya Omtatah. There is no doubt the attackers wanted to kill Omtatah and left him hoping mission accomplished.
By now I had thought one of the media house would have gathered courage and released the photos showing the hell Omtatah went through but to my surprise, nothing.
I was the first of his friends to see him and I managed to take a couple of photos. I did not take good photos as I was not sure the whereabouts of the assailants; whether they were still in pursuit to clear evidence. So I hurriedly took this photos and hid the camera asap.
That aside, I managed to get as many photojournalists from major media houses who took photos before I relocated Omtatah to Marter Hospital. I am not able to understand why those photos are not even circulating on blogs. Maybe journalism ethics conspired to keep evil covered.
Yesterday Omtatah was taken back to theatre to redo the stitches on the wounds he sustained following the savage and babaric assault by unknown people. He has two gross wounds on the front and back of his head. He also sustained a cut on his upper lip. The theatre procedures started at 2pm and he came out well back to the ward at 5pm. By the time I left hospital last night, he was so deep a sleep from the medicine exhaustion; we did not talk.
According to Omtatah, he was attacked by two men dressed in smart business suits. The assailants asked him: “when are dropping that BVR case?” a question he answered negative. The attack took place on Thursday November 8, 2012 in Nairobi’s CBD on the Kenyatta Avenue at around 9pm.
So far we have accumilated close to KShs. 200,000/- in hospital bills. I want to encourage well wishers and concerned to consider giving something towards to help settle this bill. If you want to make a contribution you can reach me on this number 0720451235. Incase you want to get in touch with Omtatah I request you to text him but as much as possible avoid calling him.
Thank you for the solidarity with Omtatah.
