Dennis Ochieng, 24, who hails from Nyang'oma in Alego, Siaya county, was shot in his chest at Kisumu Boys roundabout on Monday.
He is currently recuperating well at Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital where is admitted.
Speaking to the Star, Ochieng said, it was God who saved his life after the bullet went through the left side of his chest leaving only particles, which were removed by doctors during surgery on Tuesday.
"Were it not the Almighty God. It would have been a different story. He has saved me from the jaws of death," he said.
On Wednesday, he was questioned by officers from the Independent Policing Oversight Authority who are investigating cases of alleged police brutality against citizens during the Azimio protests.
He has also been visited at the hospital by human rights activists who have called for a thorough probe into the alleged use of excessive force by police.
"The officers have questioned me. Today I was visited by two Ipoa officers and yesterday there was a senior one who came," he said.
Ochieng denied engaging in violent protest and called for a thorough investigation into his shooting for him to get justice.
He said he had left work and was rushing to his residence in Nyalenda to be with his family when he was caught in the melee between the police and protesters.
The survivor wants the government to compensate him for the bills he has incurred since Monday.
Ochieng is married. He said he did not expect that the peaceful demonstrations will turn into running battles between the police and protesters.
On Monday, one person was shot dead at Kondele while another one was lynched by mob at Fanana area in the same area over mugging allegations.
Kevin Odiwuor was also shot in the head at Nyalenda during the demonstrations. He is also admitted at Kisumu County Referral Hospital.
On Wednesday, Kisumu Governor Anyang Nyong'o banned the mass action protest in the city after consultaton with Azimio top leaders.
Human rights defender Audi Ogada has supported the ban saying goons were taking advantage of the protest to terrorise residents.
"These goons have been erecting illegal road blocks, stealing and robbing residents during demonstrations," Ogada said.
The protest has seen three deaths including a Maseno University student, who was shot by police.
"Even though the citizens have the right to picket, it has turned chaotic as criminals take advantage leading loss of innocent lives," he said.
