“We will stop at nothing to ensure justice,” Matiang’i assures family of slain Embu brothers

In Summary

  • CS Matiang’i assures parents of slain Embu brothers that justice will be served.
  • CS Matiang’i: “Action will be swift and decisive on any officer found to be culpable. Once again, my condolences to the family.”

Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i has promised the family of the late brothers, Benson Njiru and Emmanuel Mutura, who died mysteriously after being arrested by police that justice will be served.

The tough-talking CS assured the bereaved family that investigations into the untimely death of their sons will be hastened. Matiang’i spoke on Wednesday, August 11 when he met the family of Njiru, 22, and Mutura, 19, alongside Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai and Attorney General Kihara Kariuki.

“As a parent, it pains me a great deal. We will be patient for the final report and stop at nothing to ensure justice is served. Action will be swift and decisive on any officer found to be culpable. Once again, my condolences to the family,” said Matiang’i.

Autopsy on brothers reveal otherwise

An autopsy conducted at Embu Level 5 Hospital revealed that the brothers died of multiple head and rib injuries, inflicted by a blunt object.

The findings technically ruled out police claims that the brothers jumped out of a moving police car after they were arrested during curfew hours.

Meanwhile, a witness statement claims that on the fateful day, Mutura was the first one to be arrested. He alleges that the police were assaulting him, making Ndwiga to lead to his younger brother’s defense. It was at this point, the statement alleges, that Ndwiga was hit on the head by the police and collapsed on the ground.

“Huyu karao alitukamia akiwa na ubaya, baada ya kugongwa waliwekwa kwa seats za mbele za gari,” one of the witnesses revealed to the press.

The late brothers will be laid to rest on Friday, August 13 at their home in Kithagari village.
