Human rights groups have said that cases of extrajudicial killings and forced disappearances are still happening in East Africa.

In a meeting attended by human right groups from East Africa,the stakeholders said extra judicial killings have become a normal thing.

According to Daniel Kaima from the International Medical Legal Unit this form of  injustice needs to be instituted so as to prevent more cases from happening.

Kenya has a history in extra judicial killings dating back to 2007 with most of these cases having not been solved or investigated.

Kaima is suggesting that a strong legal action against offenders should be taken to serve as a warning to those who may try to engage in similar activities.

Roby Chacha from Amnesty International said that Kenya is among the top 3 countries in the world in extra judicial killings and most of these cases are during protests by different  people agitating for their rights.
