Friday November 23, 2018-Interior Cabinet Secretary, Fred Matiangi, has said his ministry will investigate cases of extrajudicial killings in Kayole and Dandora estates in Nairobi.
Speaking during a law and governance stakeholders meeting in Nairobi on Friday, Matiangi said he will form a task force to investigate into genuine cases of extrajudicial killings that are happening in those two areas.
He said the ministry is establishing a tracking database for the cases to ensure they are expedited.
“The database to be built by the Internal Affairs Unit will help us know the number of cases reported, investigated, and acted on.”
“That is what will ensure the credibility of the cases,” Matiang’i said.
Matiangi spoke at the height of concerns by rights activists who have protested rampant police killings in the country.
Early this month, human rights organisations protested the police killing of 24 people at Dandora, Kayole, Mathare and Majengo in three weeks.
Hessy wa Dandora and Kayole are among ‘cops” who celebrate the killing of the criminals on social media.
