Protests were witnessed in Mathira Constituency following the brutal murder of a young man by rogue police officers. It is alleged the man was shot upon confrontations with the police on curfew hour. Mathira member of parliament Rigathi Gachagua went to the scene and led the residents in the protests.
The officer are said to have come at around seven o clock and ordered businesses people to close down or face the consequences. Those who didn't were tortured. The deceased boy is said to have been in confrontations with one of the police for attacking his father. He made an attempt of protecting him and that is when he was shot dead.
This is however contrary to the law as curfew Should begin at ten o'clock according to the president orders. The Member of Parliament has promised further protests if the officer accountable will not be arraigned in court by Monday.
