Names of 3 policemen accused of killing lawyer Willy Kimani released

02 July 2016, 18:18 William Korir

Nairobi - Police have named three officers accused of being involved in the plot to kill Lawyer Willy Kimani.

The three officers have been named as Fredrick Leliman, Stephen Chebulet and Silvia Wanjiku.

The three are already in custody and face murder charges for killing Kimani and two others.

It is believed that they were involved in the plot to abduct the three and held them at a Police Post before killing them.

The bodies of the three, Kimani, a taxi driver and Kimani's client were found dumped in a river in Oldonyo Sabuk.

The taxi driver Joseph Muiruri’s body together with that of Kimani were retrieved Friday from the river in Kilimambogo.

Another body, that of boda boda rider Josephat Mwenda, the client and prime witness in a case in which Kimani was helping him pursue over Police harassment was spotted by residents of Oldonyo Sabuk floating in a river on Thursday evening. 

The three have been missing for seven days after they were reported to have been abducted by AP officers as they left a Mavoko court.

Kimani, a lawyer with the International Justice Mission, was reported missing last Thursday, hours after attending a court session in which some APs had charged Mwenda with a traffic offence.

According to a witness, the three were bundled into a waiting AP Land Cruiser and driven to an unknown destination. 

A man said to be a boda boda operator on Thursday contacted Kimani’s family on the phone and informed them that the lawyer was locked up at Mlolongo AP camp.

The man claimed he had picked up a note thrown from the window of a metal container at the Mlolongo AP camp. 

The AP officers are said to have threatened the three and asked them to drop the case before court or face dire consequences, News24 has learnt.

But as they refused and time went by the officers decided enough was enough and went on to kill them, reports state.

Lawyers have called for the resignation of Police boss Boinett as well as the AP commandant and other senior government officials over the killing.
