Kianjokoma Brothers' Murderers Unable To attend A Court Hearing After Contracting Covid-19

Four of the six police officers charged with murdering two Embu brothers have contracted COVID-19 while in custody.

They were supposed to attend the court for the hearing of their bail application on Wednesday, September 23, but they failed due to their COVID-19 status.

The four, Corporal Benson Mbuthia Mabuuri and police constables Martin Musamali Wanyama, Nicholas Sang Cheruiyot and James Mwaniki Njohu are currently in quarantine at the Kamiti Maximum prison.

About ten bodies stepped up to ensure that the family of the deceased got the deserved justice. The bodies include the Law Society of Kenya (LSK), International Justice Mission (IJM), the Independent Police Oversight Authority (IPOA) and Independent Medico-Legal Unit (IMLU), among others.

The lawyers to the suspects have resisted the bodies seeking to get enjoined to the case claiming that they will interfere with IPOA investigations as they might be having hidden agendas.

Let's hope the family gets served with justice.
