0 228

Majengo residents Thika Town are now calling on  Independent Policing Oversight Authority  IPOA to move with speed and  investigate the death of William Ginthenji  a 21 year old youth who was shot dead  allegedly by the police last weekend.

According to Kevin Njuguna who  witnessed the bloody scene, Githenji had brief scuffle with the  officers before being short on the chest.

‘‘We were having a nice time and telling stories at our usual base, when the officers approached  us and handcuffed us  … they then went on and  pounced  on the deceased before shooting him,’’explained Njuguna.

He also revealed that  the deceased was a  reformed drug peddler [bhang] and has not been seeing eye to eye with  Thika station police officers.

Body of William Ginthenji   is currently at General  Kago Fineral Home in Thika.

Meanwhile our efforts to reach the police over the matter were futile.
