A boda boda operator who picked up a note scribbled on a tissue paper by the slain lawyer, Willie Kimani, has been shot dead.
The motorbike operator was on Wednesday, July 6, shot dead by an unknown attacker.
This is according to scanty information shared on social media which adds that there was a massive protest by boda-boda operators against the shooting of their colleague. It was alleged that the motorbike operators blocked some part of Mombasa road near Syokimau.
Meanwhile earlier on Wednesday, an angry mob burned down the Syokimau camp where the lawyer Willie Kimani, his client Josephat Mwendwa and their driver Joseph Muriuri were allegedly kept before they were tortured to death.
The mob reportedly stormed into the container (containing cells, an office and an armoury) and removed valuables before setting the whole place on fire.
Human right lawyer, Willie, had dropped a note written hurriedly on a tissue paper from the back of a car moments before he was taken away, instructing the bearer of the note to call his wife as he was in serious danger.
This was after he was kidnapped with two others and were being conveyed to their death scene.
A boda boda operator then picked up the note and informed the lawyer’s wife. Later on, it was found that the three men had been killed and thrown into a river.
A post-mortem results on the bodies of the three revealed barbaric details of how the three were tortured to death, showing Josephat Mwenda suffered the worst.
There was blood in his chest cavity, his skull was fractured and he had severe injuries to his head, neck, and chest.
The eight-hour postmortem was carried out by the government pathologist, Johansen Oduor, at Kenyatta National Hospital with the help of other specialists.
Four police officers linked to the murder including Fredrick Leliman, Stephen Chebulet, Silvia Wanjiku and Leonard Maina Mwangi. They have been apprehended and are currently in police custody.
