During the early hours of the day, a young man was gunned down in Kahawa West for expressing himself as he should in a democratic society by police officers who allegedly collected the spent cartridges before they hurriedly exited the scene of murder.
According to Denis Itumbi who posted a video (link provided below) showing the young man's body lying lifelessly on a Mkokoteni, they youth's only mistake was to express himself as he should in a democratic society. Denis Itumbi said, "A young man lost all he had in Kahawa, he expressed himself as he should in a democratic society. He got a bullet through his head."
Hustlers in Kahawa West, according to Denis Itumbi and as seen in the video attached, decided to carry the dead body of the young man to the nearest police station protesting the brutal and senseless killing by the police.
