KILLER COPS?

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

IMLU’s Peter Kiama in Septem­ber urged Kenyans to re­port ex­tra­ju­di­cial killings so ac­tion can be taken against per­pe­tra­tors. Civil so­ci­ety or­gan­i­sa­tions and sev­eral lead­ers held protests in July, fol­low­ing the killing of hu­man rights lawyer Wil­lie Kimani, his client Josphat Mwenda and their taxi driver Joseph Muiruri. They were ab­ducted by sus­pected AP of­fi­cers on June 23 af­ter a hear­ing in which Mwenda had ac­cused an AP of­fi­cer of as­sault. Their de­com­pos­ing bod­ies were found a week later near Ol-Donyo Sabuk River. Fol­low­ing the case, Om­buds­man Otiende Amollo in July asked Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta to form a com­mis­sion of in­quiry to in­ves­ti­gate ex­tra­ju­di­cial killings and dis­ap­pear­ances linked to po­lice of­fi­cers .
