Three of the slain suspected thugs in Dandora were students in Secondary School and in University.
Two of the suspects were reportedly students at the Dandora Secondary in while the other one was a a student at the Kisii University.
Josephine Karongoma a guardian to Samuel Musili who was shot dead says her nephew was supposed to sit for his exams this year.
“I got the news of Musili’s murder at 6:45 am on Sunday. I got confused because i have been taking of this for the past two years following the death of his mother, and i know that he is a boy of good standing,” narrates Karongoma.
Speaking to Ghetto Radio News, Karongoma says her nephew was shot dead after a police officer asked him to climb down a tree from where he was following the chase between the police and the thugs.
“He knelt down and tried to explain to the police that he is a student, but they could hear none of it. One of the female officers came and instructed the male colleague to shoot him and just like that he was killed,” she says.
Wilfred Olang of Dandora Justice Center also condemned the killings saying the police got the wrong people.
Olang says three of the slain suspects were members of the same family who were killed after one suspect took refuge into their house.
“These people were sleeping when the thug got into their house from the roof. Police came, and ordered them to lie down killing all of them instantly,” he said.
Olang has faulted the police’s actions saying that they should have arrested the suspects instead of killing them since there was no shoot out.
The killings come just barely a month after another six suspects were killed in the same area causing outrage from the Dandora community.
