RIP: Pain as Masimba Protests Victims Are Laid to Rest

The funeral service of 3 out of 4 people who were killed during protests in Masimba is currently ongoing.

Leaders who are in attendance have condemned use of excessive force by police officers while quelling protests.

The IPOA commisoner has assured mourners that investigations into the deaths are making steady progress.

The 4 ended up dead after police shot at residents who were protesting following frequent attacks by elephants at the area which has left many people dead and others with serious injuries.

The angry residents blocked Mombasa-Nairobi Highway. Things got ugly when they blocked a GSU lorry and hurled stones at it, an incident that left people with injuries.

Following the sad deaths, interior CS Fred Matiangi apologized to the families of the deceased and also promised that the government will ensure compensation of all those who lost property or their loved ones through human-wildlife conflict in the area.
