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.

Wycliff Vincent Oduor was a suspect in the 2019 72 million heist case. He had been arrested and was out on bond after his arraignment following the heist. On March 24th, 2020, Oduor was killed by police officers. After the killing, DCI released a statement alleging Oduor died in a shoot-out at Kayole Junction after robbing citizens around that area. After the official statement was released, disputing narratives started circulating online saying the police officer’s story was a cover-up, as witnesses state Mr. Oduor was unarmed and pleading for his life before they fatally shot him. IPOA has since released a statement saying they are investigating the case.
