Unknown gunmen on Wednesday threw a grenade and fired gunshots at Kenyan opposition leader, Kalonzo Musyoka’s resident.

Police have confirmed the incident which took place at 2.a.m saying no one was injured.

The Karen division police commander, Cunningham Suiyanka told Xinhua that Musyoka, former Kenyan Vice President was at home when the incident happened.

He said the attackers arrived there using a private car and drove past the main gate after realizing there were private guards.

He said already police have launched investigation into the incident.

“We will issue a comprehensive statement once investigations are complete,” said Suiyanka.

Already the force has deployed detectives from the Bomb Squad Unit to Musyoka’s home .

The former vice President is one of the co-principals in the National Super Alliance (NASA) which is being led by Raila Odinga.

They later made a u-turn meters ahead and stopped opposite the gate, hurled the grenade into the compound before shooting several times.

The grenade reportedly hit a security wire on the perimeter wall and bounced back exploding.

The police said the attackers drove off soon after the incident. Musyoka's aide said they collected the spent cartridges and the grenade safety pin as evidence to the attack.

Police rushed to the scene soon after the news of the attack went out.

The incident took place hours after security seconded to Musyoka and other NASA principals had been withdrawn on Tuesday over unexplained reasons ahead of the planned swearing-in of Raila Odinga and Musyoka as the "people's president and deputy president" respectively on Tuesday. However, Musyoka did not show up.
