The family of a young Kenyan woman who was reportedly murdered by a British soldier nearly a decade ago intends to sue the Ministry of Defence in order to obtain answers about her death. Wanjiru' s family has hired the law firm Leigh Day to sue the Ministry of Defence for failing to investigate her alleged murder, according to the family.
George Kinoti, the Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI), has implicated British soldiers as suspects in the 2012 assassination of Agnes Wanjiru. Kinoti said he was recording the testimony of the 14 troops who will identify the perpetrator of the horrible murder on Thursday, December 2.
Kinoti told the National Assembly' s Defense and Foreign Relations Committee that his murder team was prepared to travel to the United Kingdom (UK) to interrogate the soldiers, and that he had established contact with the Royal Military Police there.
Kgn Thornborrow J. (39114703), Kgn McKenna LJ. (30101459), Cpl Byrne SC. (25157836), Sgt Miller SJ (25113314), Sgt Higgins ST (25055002), Kgn Bradshaw KA (30098525), Kgn Giles DP, A Coy (30109694), and Armitage AJ, A Coy (30109694) are among the 14. (25133273).
" Because the Kenyan authorities retain jurisdiction over the matter, the investigating team, in collaboration with the Royal Military Police, is responsible for interviewing and recording the statements of those affected, " Kinoti stated.
The DCI chief informed legislators that he had not yet determined whether Wanjiru was slain in the hotel room reserved by the military and put into the septic tank, or if she was killed while they were laying in wait.
It seems obvious that the deceased never returned to the bar and that she was murdered by a British soldier in uniform who was last seen with her. " " The septic tank where the deceased' s body was discovered and collected is in the same direction that the dead and the soldier were spotted heading, " Kinoti explained.
Agnes Wanjiru' s body was discovered in 2012 after she allegedly went out partying with British soldiers at the Lions Court hotel in Nanyuki' s central town, where the British army has a permanent presence.
A British soldier confessed to killing Wanjiru and showed his buddies where he put her body in a septic tank behind the hotel, according to the Sunday Times. Following the release of the report, Kenyan police reopened the case, prompting new requests for an inquiry to bring Wanjiru to justice.
