The police officers arrested four boys one of them being Kevin Kipyegon. After being grilled by the police and Kevin learned that he stood no chance of surviving he asked the police to at least shoot him next to his mother’s grave.
While narrating the story, Kipyegon’s uncle said Kevin was in a group of four boys that the police had accused of attacking officers on patrol. The families of the killed boys have maintained that the four of them would have been on the run if they truly attacked the police and they were innocent.
“My nephew pleaded with the police and told them that if they were serious and truly wanted to kill him, then they should do it next to his mother’s grave. The police agreed to drag close to his mother’s grave and shot him there,” Kevin’s uncle said.
The expose by NTV has elicited mixed reactions among Kenyans with a number of people asking why the police would kill without arresting and following the law. A section of Kenyans want the police officers who executed the boys to face the law.
