President Uhuru Kenyatta has been urged to participate in the pursuit of justice for the disabled man reportedly killed by government vehicles transporting guests to his meeting in Nyeri last week.
Christopher Ndiritu was reportedly run over by two state vehicles which were reportedly part of a convoy headed for Nyeri, which has angered some leaders who are members of his own Jubilee Party.
On Saturday, Nominated MP David Sankok demanded that the president and Inspector General of Police addresses the issue, failure to which he will lead demonstrations to State House in two weeks.
"I am telling police IG and even our President, I am telling him, I have given 14-day ultimatum for justice to be served on my brother Christopher,” he said during the burial of Ndiritu at Karundas village in Nyeri county.
He declared his readiness to die in pursuit of justice for the deceased man, who was reportedly headed to a nearby shopping center on his wheelchair during the incident.
Sankok now warns that he will mobilize all disabled people in the country to demonstrate in honour of the late Ndiritu, and lead them to anywhere they can get justice for the departed man.
“Failure, all people with disability in Kenya shall demonstrate to State House, or anywhere else where we will get justice for our brother. Even if we will be killed, we are ready," added Sankok, a representative of persons with disabilities.
The incident has as well been criticized by Nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura, another representative of the persons with disabilities.
