The SRA Family is shocked by the loss of lives of lawyer Willie Kimani, Joseph Muiruri a taxi driver and Josephat Mwenda a boda boda rider. We deeply condole with the family and pray their souls to Rest in Peace.
Separately, as we await the outcome of the shocking allegations, SRA asserts that it stands for justice. It was for this reason that we pooled together as neighbours to build the Syokimau Police Post and further stretched out to as well to construct shelter for the police.
We take note that following the widely reported incidence involving alleged and unfortunate use of Syokimau Police Post to hold the deceased advocate Willie Kimani, his client and taxi driver, there has been calls by among others the Law Society of Kenya to disband the post.
SRA has noted with concern these sentiments and wishes to state that the Syokimau Police Post was a community initiative following increased insecurity incidences in our estate. The police post serves over 15,000 other residents.
SRA’s position is that disbandment of the Syokimau Police Post will have grave consequences to our residents. Our focus is to have its gazettement fast-tracked to pave way for a full-fledged police station. In this regard culprits concerned, after police investigations should instead take full responsibility for the shocking incident.
Chairman, Syokimau Residents Association
