0 415

Victims of the Nyayo torture chambers during the retired president Daniel Toroitich arap Moi era today emotionally recounted the sufferings they went through in detention.

James one of the torture victims says that he has never forgiven Moi since his apology was not sincere enough.

Zacharia Osewe the son of late Doctor Osewe who was detained and tortured in 1986 says their family has been lavishing in poverty since the death of their father.

Most of the victims of the Nyayo torture chambers are yet to receive any form of compensation ordered by the courts many years ago.

The victims and survivors gathered early today to commemorate the 16th anniversary of opening of the torture chambers at Nyayo house.

Wachira Waheire, the secretary of the National Victims and Survivors Network led the group to express their pain and anger.

He asked court orders issued on 26th March 2015 to compensate torture survivors to be obeyed immediately.

The secretary also requested President Uhuru Kenyatta to make it possible for all human rights violation sites all over the country to be recognised and made memorial sites.
