NAIROBI (AFP) – A second Kenyan opposition lawmaker was shot dead, police said Thursday, amid spiralling unrest sparked by disputed presidential elections more than one month ago.

“He was killed by a traffic police officer,” in a suburb of Eldoret in western Kenya, a police commander told AFP in Nairobi, adding that the killing appeared to be connected to a romantic dispute.

“He was with a girl who is a police officer. He was shot by another policeman believed to be her boyfriend,” he said.

Police said the lawmaker was David Kiumtai Too, from the party of opposition leader Raila Odinga, who claims President Mwai Kibaki cheated him of victory in widely-contested December 27 polls.

Another Orange Democratic Movement lawmaker, Melitus Mugabe Were, was shot dead early Tuesday in Nairobi.

Odinga accused his political “adversaries” of having a hand in that killing, which sparked further bloodshed in flashpoint western regions and the capital’s slums.

With the toll from the post-poll violence nearing 1,000 and close to 300,000 people displaced, representatives of Kibaki and Odinga met Thursday for the first time together in Nairobi with former UN chief Kofi Annan.
