Kenya: Kenyans march to demand justice for murdered lawyer

June 30, 2017

Keyan Right Activists

Rights activists have marched through Kenya’s capital Nairobi to demand justice for Willie Kimani who was brutally murdered last year alongside his client and driver.

The incident put the police on the spot over extra-judicial killings and five policemen have been charged with murder.

The protestors from the rights group International Justice Mission (IJM) took a petition against extra-judicial killings to the office of the Inspector General of police and the president’s office.

Mr Kimani’s client had filed a complaint against a police officer. The three men were reportedly kidnapped after a court appearance in June last year.

Tortured bodies of the three men were later recovered from Ol Donyo Sabuk river in central Kenya a week after they were reported missing.

A plaque to honour Mr Kimani as a fallen hero of justice was also unveiled at the Supreme Court museum:
