A Molo politician was killed in the ethnic clashes that started soon after President Kibaki was declared winner of the election.
GG Njuguna Ngengi became the latest casualty after marauding youths armed with bows and arrows attacked him on Tuesday afternoon.
Ngengi was shot with an arrow before being hacked to death at Ngenia farm in Kuresoi.
He was killed after armed youth disrupted a meeting he was addressing in a bid to broker peace between the warring local communities.
Molo OCPD, Mr Litabalia Achesa confirmed the incident and said security had been intensified in the area.
Ngengi came to the limelight in the 1990s when he and Assistant minister, Mr Koigi wa Wamwere, were charged with violent robbery for allegedly storming the Bahati Police Station in 1993.
On learning of Ngengi’s death, Koigi said the Government should act fast to quell the violence saying the country was on the verge of full-scale war.
"We are staring at possible genocide. The Government should bring in the army to restore peace and order," he said.
He added: "It is clear we are facing a monster that consumes anything that comes its way."
Koigi who lost the Subukia Parliamentary seat to Mr Nelson Gaichuhie, said time should not be wasted in calming the volatile situation in the country.
