William Ruto Issues Bold Demand On The Death of Two Embu Brothers Who Died in Police Hands, Says Thi

Deputy President William Ruto on Friday, August 6, made a phone call to Embu residents who were protesting the death of two brothers who had been arrested by police officers.

According to a report by Kenyans, the Deputy President calmed area residents and urged the residents to stop protesting adding that they will ensure justice is served to the family of the two.

The DP said investigations will be done to establish how the two university students died.

"We will not sleep until justice is served and the culprits are brought to book. We demand to know how two youngsters died, whether in the hands of police or other people," the DP stated as quoted by Kenyans.

The remarks come after a series of protests on Embu after area residents took to the streets to protest the Death of the two people.

One person was shot dead by police officers on Thursday's protests, a development that showed the matter was getting out of hand.

According to a police report field at Manyatta Police Station, the two boys died after jumping from a police vehicle on their way to the station.

The report however seems to conflict with the autopsy report which indicates that the two died as a result of being hit by a blunt object.

The report has raised eyebrows with speculation mounting on the possibility of the two being killed by police officers.
