After the Independent Policing and Oversight Authority, IPOA released the six names of the police men and women implicated in the murders of Benson Njiru and his brother Emmanuel Mutura, popularly known as the Kianjokoma Brothers, the trail of online posts of one of the suspected killers is simply just perplexing.
The names of the six, Lilian Cherono, Consolata Njeri, Nicholas Sang, Benson Mbuthia, Martin Wanyama and James Mwaniki weren’t easy to pin down on the internet, since many go by similar names.
However, the Facebook profile of Martin Wanyama sticks out like a sore thumb for the simple reason that, although there are countless profiles with similar names, there’s only one flooded with photos of the user in police uniform and on a police vehicle. Another one is of the Administration Police logo.
Shockingly, Martin seems to be quite the religious man. A look at his posts and photos would never make one think that he’s a suspect in one of the country’s most heinous murders.
In one of the photos, he’s actually on the pulpit preaching
Another post is actually a Bible verse from Genesis 12:3. Captioned besides an American flag, it says, “I will bless those who bless you and those who curse you I will curse, Genesis 12:3”.
Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji had ordered for the immediate arrest of six police officers linked to the mysterious deaths of the two brothers in Embu who died after they were arrested for violating curfew rules.
Consequently, Haji directed the Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai to enforce the arrest of the six before close of business on Monday pending the conclusion of the probe and to curb any interference from the yet to be identified officers.
Haji regretted as unfortunate the fact that Benson Njiru and Emmanuel Mutura died in the hands of the police as he assured that justice will be served.
“It bears repeating that law enforcement officials have a duty to comply with all constitutional requirements as to human rights and freedoms of persons in their custody while in the course of maintaining law and order,” he said.
