Former President Uhuru Kenyatta's ex-lawyer has lauded the government of President Willliam Ruto for allegedly not carrying out any extrajudicial killings for several months
Senior Counsel Ahmednasir Abdullahi has said it is historic that Kenya has recorded no extrajudicial killings for five months.
According to him, the previous governments through its security agents were killing innocent Kenyans under unclear circumstances
"August to December 2022...First time in Kenya's history that the Government of Kenya and its security agents have for 5 months not extrajudicially killed an innocent Kenyan!" he posed
It should be noted that after President Ruto took over from his predecessor, he pulled out a surprise move by disbanding the alleged killer squad, the Special Service Unit (SSU) which operated under the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI)
The unit was mentioned for several killings, including Kenyans and none locals
Before former DCI boss George Kinoti formed SSU, he disbanded the Flying Squad unit, which was also linked to extrajudicial killings
Sources recently revealed that Ruto's government was also considering forming a special unit to replace the SSU. However, the details of the said unit have not been revealed to the public.
