Missing Kenyan Lawyer Found Dead


The bodies of slain lawyer Willie Kimani (pictured), his taxi driver and the advocate’s client were retrieved from a river in Machakos County on July 1, 2016. A High Court judge has ordered autopsies as the Law Society of Kenya has demanded the resignation of Police Inspector-General Joseph Boinnet and others over the killings. The Law Society of Kenya (LSK) said Willie Kimani’s death was a “dark day for the rule of law in Kenya”.Kenya’s police have often been accused of brutality and they have been blamed for a series of extrajudicial killings.

The police chief has ordered the arrest of three police officers suspected of being involved in his kidnapping.Mr Kimani, who was 32, went missing along with his taxi driver and client after a court appointment over a week ago.
