Trans Nzoia County Assembly Speaker Joshua Werunga has been transferred to Mediheal Hospital, in Eldoret, for treatment.
Werunga and more than ten others had earlier been taken to Mt. Elgon Hospital after sustaining serious injuries following a scuffle with police at Kolongolo in Kwanza Constituency.
Unconfirmed reports indicate that Werunga sustained bullet wounds following the ugly confrontation with the security officers.
The officers had gone to arrest a man suspected to have attacked a woman, but the incident got ugly, following resistance from area residents, forcing the police to open fire shooting dead two and injuring scores of people.
The assembly boss and other local leaders had rushed to the scene with the aim of calming the situation but ended up being caught in the crossfire.
