Police Station burnt down over lawyers murder

A section of Syokimau AP police camp on fire as bodaboda operators demonstrate the killing of lawyer Willie Kimani Josphat Mwenda (client) and a taxi driver

Syokimau Administration Police camp was set on fire by an angry mob where officers who were linked to the murder of Lawyer Willie Kimani his client and a taxi man were stationed.

Before their mysterious disappearance, they were reportedly held at the camp for several hours and later their bodies found in Ol Donyo Sabuk river Machakos County.
Enraged protesters and bodaboda operators on Wednesday set a section of the camp on fire after FBIs aiding their Kenyan cousyoki 3nterparts in investigations visited the scene.

It is believed that the trio was killed at the camp before their bodies were dumped in the river.

Phone records obtained by detectives showed that the suspects used the mobile phones of the three slain men to confuse the investigating officers.

The mobile phones were traced to different parts of the country and investigators believe that the move was meant to confuse them, as the suspects sought more time to get rid of the three victims.

Kimani’s phone signal was tracked to Kiambu, Josphat Mwenda’s mobile phone was traced to Bungoma while taxi driver Joseph Muiruri’s phone signals indicated the device was at Kawangware in Nairobi.

At the same time in Nairobi and around the country, members of the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) took to the streets demonstrating against the rising extrajudicial killings in the country.

The lawyers called for justice for not only Kimani but his client Josephat Mwenda and taxi driver Joseph Muiruri as a show of solidarity.

A pathologist hired by LSK confirmed that the victims had died an ‘extremely painful death’ due to the gruesome injuries sustained.

The four police officers linked to the murders will be detained for 14 days after which they will be arraigned in court.
