Another police officer detained over Willie Kimani's murder

05 July 2016, 14:01

Nairobi - Another police officer has been detained over the murder of lawyer Willie Kimani and his two associates.

This comes just a day after three other police officers were detained over the same.

Lawyer Willie Kimani and his client Josephat Mwendwa had filed a complaint alleging that Mwendwa had been shot and injured by police in April.

Mwendwa was then charged with a range of offences, including possessing drugs, gambling in public and resisting arrest, rights activists said.

The U.S.-based International Justice Mission, which Kimani and taxi driver Joseph Muiruri worked for, said on Friday their two bodies and that of their client Mwendwa had been found in the Ol-Donyo Sabuk River in Kilimambogo.

Three officers- Fredrick Leliman, Stephen Chebulet and Silvia Wanjiku, who were linked to the trio’s murder were arrested and charged on Monday.

They were remanded for 14 days as investigations into the killings continue.

On Tuesday, the DPP ordered that Sergeant Leonard Maina Mwangi be remanded for 13 days over fears that he might interfere with witnesses.

According to Standard, Mwangi is attached to Syokimau Chief’s camp and will be charged once investigations into Kimani and associates’ murder are complete.
