The United Nations World Food Program says the head of its office in northwest Kenya has been ambushed and killed.
In a statement today (Friday), the WFP says Silence Chirara was gunned down late Wednesday near the U.N. camp in Lokichoggio by unidentified gunmen, who then fled.
The statement says at the time, Chirara was driving a clearly marked U.N. vehicle and was just 100 meters from the camp's main gate.
Chirara was the coordinator of the WFP's logistics operation for southern Sudan. The WFP's representative in Sudan (Kenro Oshidari) condemned what he called a "savage" killing, and said U.N. security and Kenyan police are investigating.
This was the first killing of a WFP aid worker in Lokichoggio -- a major hub for relief efforts in southern Sudan.
