Families of 15-year-old Peter Mbothu and Christopher Kariuki, 21 killed in political chaos that erupted in Kenol are now demanding justice from the government after a failed compensation, 2 years down the line.
During the 2020 incidence, Jubilee rival parties; Tangatanga and Kieleweke had ferried youths from Nairobi to scuffle in Muranga where the then Deputy president, William Ruto was anticipated to visit.
Unexpected to them, they were eagerly awaited by enraged local and soon after their arrival, a brouhaha erupted and this came in expense of some lives after a successful lynch.
Ever since then, politicians allied to president Uhuru Kenyatta promised to compensate for the loss of the two lives but until now, nothing instrumental has been done.
According to sources, a committee was formed after the incidence to raise money and buy 2-acres piece of land for Kariuki's and Mbothu's family. A sum of Tens of millions was raised then.
However, due to greed, a group of politicians who had the money by their side distanced themselves from the committee where they later bangled the money meant for the bereaved families to their own advantage.
Speaking to media sources, Kariuki's sister Lucy Njoki who is still in pain over her brother's loss has revealed that she is now not after the money but justice, claiming that the matter should be considered to be brought before the court of law since it would have been the case if two politicians had died in the incidence.
