Justice ‘Still Not Served’ Over Murder of Christian Attorney In Kenya


Four Kenyan police officers have been charged with murder over the deaths of a Christian human rights attorney, his client and cab driver.

Still, the American Center for Law and Justice says “justice is not yet served.”

The three men, Willie Kimani, his client, and their cab driver, went missing after Kimani had filed a case on behalf of his client against a police officer. The men were abducted while leaving Mavoko Law Court following a hearing relating to the case.

One week later, their three decomposing bodies were recovered in a river outside of Nairobi. Post-mortem revealed signs of torture on the bodies.

“These crimes were not random. Their murders were an attempt to silence those who sought to hold corrupt public officials accountable in Kenya,” the ACLJ said.

Kimani was an attorney for the International Justice Mission, a Christian organization. According to his case, his client had been falsely accused of a crime and shot by police.

“Those who tried to silence Willie Kimani must be held accountable,” the ACLJ said. “Human rights defenders must be guaranteed safety.”
