Second Christmas in Hospital for Mother Shot in the Head


(Standard Digital) – She was full of energy, enjoying life in a remote village in Laikipia County until one night last year when everything changed.

At midnight on December 22 at Milimani Village, Laikipia West, Anne Kamama’s life was irrevocably altered by a shooting that extensively damaged her brain.

The mother of four was shot in the head by armed people believed to be bandits and left for dead. The bullet shattered her head, damaging a section of her brain. Her survival and recovery have astounded her family and doctors.

Today, she will be spending her second Christmas in hospital in Eldoret.

Relatives and villagers in Milimani had assumed Ms Kamama, 42, was dead after they found her lying in a pool of blood with brain matter gushing out of her shattered skull. CONTINUE
