Kianjokoma Brothers: DPP and IPOA Finally Respond to Exhumation Request by Police Officers

The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) and the Independent Police Oversight Authority (IPOA) have finally broken silence after officers linked to the murder of Kianjokoma brothers requested for the exhumation of their bodies so that an indipendent autopsy can be done.

According to an update by, the two have opposed the request.

They say that the family of the victims has already gone through so much and exhuming the bodies will cause more pain.

The six officers who include Consolota Njeri and Benson Mbuthia, Constables Lilian Cherono, Martin Wanyama, Nicholas Sang, and James Mwaniki argued out that the blunt force showed by the government's autopsy could have resulted after the two jumped out of a moving car.

The lawyers representing them opted out of the case meaning that they will have to look for state advocates to represent them.

The six officers are set to take plea tommorow (2nd September 2021)
