Former Law Society of Kenya boss Apollo Mboya has sued the State over rising disappearances of people and extrajudicial killings.

The case comes on the backdrop of the murder of IEBC ICT Manager Chris Msando and KMTCgraduand Carol Ngumbu.

FROM 2008

Mr Mboya on Wednesday sued the Director of Public Prosecutions, the Inspector-General of Police, the Director of Criminal Investigations as well as the Attorney-General.

He wants them ordered to produce probe reports of all missing persons and extrajudicial killings from February 2008 to date.

In his suit, he has a list of the some of the people who were either killed or disappeared without trace.

They include lawyers Albert Muriuki, who disappeared while working as a deputy director for constitutional and legislative affairs at State House, Willie Kimani, Geofrey Oriaro, Ronald Joseph Lubya and Jared Ratemo.

Mr Kimani disappeared and was found murdered alongside his client Josephat Mwenda and their taxi driver Joseph Muiruri in June 2016.

Mr Mboya wants the court to compel the sued parties to produce recorded footage of State House, Mombasa and Thika roads in a bid to shed light on the disappearance of some of the missing people.

He also wants the court to find that enforced disappearances and extra judicial killings have become widespread and require a judicial inquiry so as to bring to account those responsible.

He further wants his case to be heard by a three-judge bench.
