While I totally support “shoot to kill” but dieing after being shot on the leg looks abit smocky. Don’t try to hide the truth. Shoot in the head and say it as it is. Otherwise, keep it up. Arms are meant for our security and not that of the criminals. Shoot them!

Mpaka having or driving a Black Man’s Wheels, without being a Bwana Nkubwa or Bwana Pwepwete, or without access to Cashgate money?
So, where else did he get the money for the BMW? And why run away from the authorities?
