MP calls for prosecution of killer cops

25 June 2014, 09:07 Ken Wekesa

Tana River - Bura Member of Parliament, Ali Wario has given the National Police Service two weeks to prosecute three officers accused of killing a boda boda operator in Madogo, Tana River County.

Wario said he will lead a demonstration in the town if the police service does not investigate and prosecute the three.

Speaking at a public meeting in Bura town, Wario lamented that no action has been taken yet against police constables Benson Mulinge, Michael Rotich and Osoi Sakimba.

“The three officers were arrested following the killing of the boda boda operator and later released in unclear circumstances,” said Wario.

The legislator alleged that that the officers arrested the young man, Ibrahim Isaak Gutu, killed him and dumped his body in a thicket where it was discovered on Madaraka Day.

“The young man was picked by the police officers in Madogo area and he was later found dumped at a bush near Garissa-Hola crossroad, dead. I believe he might have been tortured and the three officers should be investigated,” said Wario.

He said the three should be arraigned in court in the next two weeks to help resolve the puzzle surrounding the murder of the boda boda operator who was last seen with the three officers.

Wario said inquiries indicated that the three were not charged because they are members of the public service.
