Court orders medical tests on tortured prisoners

12 March 2014, 11:50 Oduor Omondi

Kisumu - The Kisumu High Court on Monday ordered that medical examinations be carried on five prisoners who were allegedly tortured at Kibos Prison.

Justice Aggrey Muchelule ordered that by consent, a doctor at Kisumu District hospital examines the five prisoners and present a report before the court within 30 days.

The order comes after a petition was filed by their advocate, Joshua Jamusumbah Onyango under a certificate of urgency against the in-charge of the Kibos G.K. Main Prison, Assistant Commissioner Wilson Okombah.

In the petition, Onyango claims that he was denied access to see his clients, George Nyambati, Stephen Makoha alias Sirengo, Denis Ole Sitima, Hassan Namwibi and Paul Lusiti between February 18 -20.

Onyango told the court that he tried to get written communication on the matter from the in-charge to no avail.

He added that he was informed by some prison warders that some prisoners were tortured and that they had instructions not to see their visitors, whether relatives or lawyers.

The case will be mentioned on March 17, 2014.
