Yassin Hussein Moyo would have sat for his KCPE this year at Ndururumo Primary school in Kiamaiko, Huruma area. The 13-year-old – timid, hardworking but with a fun-loving spirit – talked so much of his dream of joining secondary school next year. His dream was however cut short by a single bullet late Monday evening, as he played with his siblings at the balcony of his family’s home. It happened so fast. It was about 7 pm, just after the curfew announced by the Kenya government to help curb the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) had set in. Their mother, who was nearby, gave little attention to the police officers who were walking past the building enforcing the dusk to dawn curfew in the area. After all, they were on the third floor of the building so they assumed they were safe. They heard a gunshot sound and Yassin told his mother he had been hit. They rushed Yassin to Mama Lucy Hospital and encountered difficulties as a result of the roadblock. When they reached Mama Lucy they had to wait almost 3 hours before he had to wait for a surgery to remove the bullet lodged in his stomach. He did not make it. According to a postmortem conducted by three pathologists from Independent Medical Legal Unit, IPOA and one representing the government, Yassin died as a result of excessive bleeding and a bullet was removed from his stomach.

On March 27, 2020, 26 year old boda-boda rider, Calvince Omondi, was on his way back from taking a customer from Oyugis to Kendu. On his way home, Omondi met a group of police officers from Kosele Police Station. According to Omondi’s father, the officers stopped Omondi at Kosele trading centre and beat him unconscious because he was operating outside curfew hours. The officers then brought him to the hospital. Omondi’s father described to the media how he found his son unconscious and how he remained speechless for 2-days until he died on Sunday morning. Since the incident, IPOA has sent out its Rapid Response Team to investigate the case.

Omondi’s father spoke of how his son left behind a wife and child. Since Omondi was the breadwinner of the family, the family is left in emotional and financial pain. Omondi’s family is left wondering why the police officer used excessive force when they could have just arrested him.

N.B. The National Police Service has denied any involvement in causing Omondi’s death.
