We’ll support Thika shooting victims with legal aid, says Kioni

Jeremiah Kioni

Jubilee Secretary General Jeremiah Kioni has said officials of the Limuru III Conference have agreed to set up a team of lawyers to represent the victims of Thika’s Friday shooting.

The shooting happened the same day as the Limuru III Conference during a confrontation between rival groups in Thika, Kiambu County.

Kioni said the team went to condole with families that had lost their loved ones in the shooting. He said they are putting together a team of lawyers to defend the rights of their people.

“Out of our Limuru III we said we will put together lawyers who will always be available to defend our people because there is quite some atrocity that has been occasioned on the poor,” Kioni said on Monday in an interview with K24.

“We are going to hold those who are responsible to account. Because that was a heinous act perpetuated to Kenyans by people they voted for.”

Kioni said one of those who was shot is a 26-year-old man from Nyandarua who is currently in critical condition.

Lawlessness reigned in Thika Town on Friday, May 17, when supporters of are MP Alice Ng’ang’a and those of Kamenu MCA Peter Mburu clashed.

Following the shooting, a team of detectives has been set up to investigate the incident.

As part of the probe, the team wants all politicians who were present to surrender their licensed weapons for ballistic tests.

The team also wants the politicians, bodyguards and other officers who used the weapons, if any to surrender them.

During the incident at the site of a proposed market in Kamenu ward, 26-year-old David Nduati was shot dead while another man Anthony Kamau, was seriously injured by a bullet that lodged in his chest.

A doctor said the bullet had penetrated the chest cavity and punctured a vital organ.

Plans are underway to transfer him to the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH).
