Naivasha - The family of Samson ole Sisina, the KWS ranger who was killed by Tom Cholmondeley in 2005 has confirmed that rituals were conducted in a bid to seek justice.
Cholmondeley shot the undercover ranger accusing him of trespassing into his property in Naivasha, but the murder case was dropped by the former AG, Amos Wako.
After efforts to reopen an inquiry into Sisina’s death failed, Maasai elders allegedly visited his grave where they conducted some rituals to curse the killer.
Now that Cholmondeley is dead, the family has renewed efforts to obtain justice for their late kin.
Through the help of lawyer Kitwa Kigen, the family is seeking to stop the late billionaire’s burial until their compensation demands are met.
