Baragoi massacre case adjourned for the fourth time

31 October 2014, 20:58 Robert Chepkwony

Nakuru - The hearing of a case in which seven villagers have been charged with the gruesome killing of 42 police officers in Baragoi two years ago was on Thursday adjourned for the fourth time.

On Thursday, Lady Justice Janet Mulwa granted the State the final adjournment as the suspects asked the court to acquit them of all the charges.

Being public servants, they noted they are suffering since their salaries were stopped. The case was adjourned after the prosecution sought more time to prepare.

Justice Janet Mulwa noted the case is old and that the accused persons has endured travelling constraints from the hardship area.

Prosecution claimed they are waiting for directions from Director of Public Prosecutions’ Office (DPP) as two persons were sentenced to death for similar charges by a Maralal court.

However, the defence team accused prosecution of laxity and told court to dismiss the cases terming the delay unreasonable.

They said the delay amounts to ‘unjust suffering’ for the accused.

The suspects, including a ward rep, four local chiefs and two elders, are facing charges of robbery with violence, specifically in relation to 12 of the officers killed and 501 heads of cattle that were stolen.

The officers were killed while on a livestock recovery mission in Lomirok village in Baragoi on the night of October 20, 2012.

The seven suspects, who are out on a Sh5 million bond, are MCA Lawrence Lorunyei, chiefs Christopher Lokerach, Enoi Lesike, Amojong Loturo and Jeremiah Ekurao, reservist Loomira Looyen and ranger Ekai Loyee.

The case will be mentioned on December 10 for another hearing date.
