Four of the six police officers charged with murdering two Embu brothers have contracted Covid-19 while in custody.
As a result, Corporal Benson Mbuthia Mabuuri and police constables Martin Musamali Wanyama, Nicholas Sang Cheruiyot and James Mwaniki Njohu did not attend court for the hearing of their bail application on Wednesday.
They are currently in quarantine at the Kamiti Maximum Prison.
But Corporal Consolata Njeri and police constable Lilian Cherono Chemuna appeared before Justice Daniel Ogembo in court where about ten non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and the Kenya National Human Rights Commissions (KNHRC) sought to be enjoined in the case.
All these police officers were found to have a case to answer in regards to the famous Kianjokoma Killings.
The Kianjokoma incident left two young men dead Emanuel Mutura and Benson Njiru who were reportedly killed by during a curfew arrest.
Their deaths caused uproar across the country with netizens calling for the officers' arrest.
Alex... The same pandemic they killed innocent souls pretending to enforce curfew stupidity..
Please vaccinate them,we want them to live long and suffer.
Susan... So they are only ones to get covid,few days in custody ?what of the other masses of prisoners,?or they are special should be congratulated for what they did?
But why do police arrest and throw people in the cells for going without masks while it's easier to give them one?.
Peter... That's a lie.The Government want to release them.They should rot in jail.
Kodesa... You are still hiding their faces so that it will be easy to release them back to continue harassing the public.
Joan... SIRIKALI.....we know our government when it wants to cover up such case and send back criminals to work,very soon utaskia wamekufa na watazikwa under tight security and thts how ppl will forget it
