A family in Nairobi’s Eastleigh area is demanding justice following the mysterious death of their son.
According the family, form two student Ramadhan Bakari, was last seen when he was arrested by a police officer in the area on 10th December 2020.
His body was later found at the City mortuary with the report saying the body was picked up from an open field in Kasarani area.
After identifying the body at the city mortuary, his mother Rukiya Bakari and his uncle Jafari say that he may have been tortured before his death.
“Hii inaonyesha aliteswa kabla ya kuuawa kwa sababu ya vile ngozi imetoka kwa mkono kama mtu alikuwa anamchoma…ni kama walitaka information fulani,” said Jafari Bakari, the uncle.
Human rights defenders are now blaming the police for laxity as such cases continue to surface.
An autopsy is expected to be conducted on his body on Monday to establish the exact cause of death.
“Swali langu ni moja, hadi lini? Kesi kama hizi zitafanyika ngapi? Or is there a target? Zifike ngapi ndio waseme ni basi?” Posed Zina Kombo from HAKI Africa.
