Kianjokoma Brothers Murder Case Takes A New Twist As Lawyers Withdraw From The Case

Six police officers accused of killing Embu brothers Benson Njiru and Emmanuel Mutura have today been dealt a major blow after ten lawyers representing them withdrew from the case. This comes barely hours after high court rejecting their request to exhume the bodies for fresh postmortem.

"10 lawyers representing 6 police officers charged with murdering two Embu brothers have withdrawn from the case," read the statement.

The six, Benson Mbuthia, Consolota Kariuki, Nicholas Cheruiyot, Martin Wanyama, Lilian Cherono, and James Mwanikiwere are accused of killing two Embu brothers on August 1st, 2021 for allegedly flaunting curfew rules.

Six police officers will now take plea on Thursday September 2, 2021. The move by lawyers to withdraw from the case is a big blow to six police officers and it may drag the case further.

In conclusion, government and independent police oversight authority should ensure six police officers who were responsible for the death of Kianjokoma brothers are held responsible so that just can be served to the family.
