Erick Kioko aka DJ Talanta is a professional Disc Jockey who entertains fans at Petro City club in Umoja, Nairobi.
His left arm was chopped off during the 2007/ 2008 post-election violence.
On January 17, after the strain had facilitated, he and relatives had chose to go and pick some family stuff. They then experienced a gathering of more than 15 outfitted men who had cornered a lady and were assaulting her in turns. DJ Talanta stoned them to get them off the lady, however obscure to him, others had laid trap behind them. One of them aimed a sharp panga at his neck, and when he made to slice him, he blocked it with his arm, which was cut by the sharp panga and fell on the ground.
