Kenya On The Spotlight As Amnesty International Finally Break Their Silence Over River Yala Bodies

Following an exposé by Human Rights activist Boniface Mwangi on how dead bodies were being dumped in River Yala, news that has attracted questions from concerned Kenyans on the nature of the social ills in the country, amnesty international has finally intervened.

The Global organisation which is tasked with protecting human rights across the rights has written to the interior cabinet secretary Fred Matiang'i urging him to act on the case where 21 mutilated bodies got dumped into the river.

Amnesty has requested Matiang'i to compile a comprehensive post mortem on the recovered bodies and come up with evidence that will be key for forensic identification and preservation of remains.

"Given the numbers involved and public interest, this must be carried out by a team of forensic specialists in pathology, radiology, anthropology, odontology, Government Chemist officials among others, not just photographers and investigators,” read part of a statement.

They also found issues with how the country had failed to establish an impartial coroner since President. Uhuru Kenyatta assumed office and urged the Attorney General to explain to the nation why one does not exist.

They also urged the National Assembly and the Senate to commission a joint Parliamentary enquiry into the rising cases of abduction and forced disappearance.
