Raila Weighs in on Lawyer Gicheru's Death, Wants Interpol to Lead the Investigations

Following the death of Lawyer Paul Gicheru early this week, the Azimio leader Raila Odinga has now called for a speedy and impartial investigation into the circumstances which may have led to the death of that lawyer.

Raila through his secretariat stated that the lawyer who was facing some charges at the ICC court seemingly died in a mysterious manner therefore the investigation into his death should be a top priority given the fact that he was involved in a high-profile case.

Odinga further argued the investigation into the death of Gicheru should now be taken over by Interpol due to the fact that he died while under the custody of the ICC.

“To avoid cover up in Kenya, we call upon international investigative agencies, including Interpol to lead the investigation. This is particularly the case has international implications as Mr. Gicheru was in the custody of the ICC at the time of his death,” read the document in part.

Mr. Gicheru died a couple of days ago in an unclear circumstance as the witnesses reported that foam was coming from his mouth when he was found dead.
