His lawyer Vincent  Lempaa told the court that his client  was assaulted  by arresting  officers and the court hard directed  that he be taken  to the hospital  which has not been  complied  with.

The court was told Kamau has been a victim of police brutally dating to the year 2007.

In August 2022 the Activist was ejected from Supreme Court for causing disturbance.

In a tweet today, seasoned Human rights activist Boniface Mwangi revealed that all the charges against Kamau had been dropped. He however claimed that Kamau underwent torture while in police custody.

“Julius Kamau is free. The fake charges were dropped. He was tortured by the police while in custody. The officers who arrested him also confiscated his phone. We hope Inspector of Police.Will ensure it’s returned. Thank you for raising your voices on his behalf. He appreciates your support,”he tweeted.
