The family of the the two Embu brothers who died in police custody will finally get justice for their kin. The death of the two shocked the country thereby placing the police service in a negative limelight.
After their death gained public attention, the Independent Policing and Oversight Authority commenced investigation inorder to know the true cause of their deaths. The results of the investigations have finally been released.
Reports released to media house room by the IPOA stated that the officers on duty on the day the two brothers died be prosecuted to face murder charges.
They therefore made three recommendations on the death of the two. First, they requested the said officers to surrender any government store or item within their possession within the shortest time possible. Second, the officers implicated in the matter be relieved off their duties pending the outcome of the findings that will be forwarded to the directorate of public prosecution for actions and lastly, the officers and commanders who were interrogated and recorded statement be available full time for further assistance on investigations.
This is the first time the police force is acting swiftly to murder cases that occur within their watch. The above recommendations will now serve as a lesson to other officers so that they can carry out their duties with due care and professionalism.
