A 30 year old kenyan man who has been identified as Robert Mureithi has sadly passed on few hours ago at one of the Police stations in Starehe sub-county after where he was being detained.
Mureithi was sentenced to serve 7 days in prison or raise a fine of Ksh 200 by the Makadara law Courts on Friday last week after being found guilty of contravening the curfew guidelines put in place by the government.
However, the convict failed to afford the heavy fine and was thus send to go back to the police station. However, things turned worse today in the morning when the convict suddenly collapsed and died.
The officer commanding station who was on a routine check of all prisoners at around 7am noticed that the man had collapsed and was unresponsive, forcing him to call in medical assistance. However, it came too late as the man had already passed on.
There are allegations that Mureithi collapsed due to overcrowding in the police cells. He was supposed to be released on Friday. His body has been taken to City mortuary.
