Why 'Police killed' lawyer Willy Kimani

02 July 2016, 10:06 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Three policemen have been arrested for links to the murder of a lawyer and two other people in Oldonyo Sabuk.

Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinett says that the three have been taken into custody while investigations continue into their role in the murder of lawyer Willy Kimani and two others.

The bodies of the three were discovered Friday in a river in Kilimambogo.

" The three have been arrested with a view to ensuring justice for all," he said Saturday.

" We reiterate that their behaviour is not representative of what the National Police Service stands for and the few rogue elements will always be dealt with firmly according to the law," he added.

Missing lawyer Willie Kimani and taxi driver Joseph Muiruri’s bodies 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.
