    4 police officers have been charged with killing Baby Pendo.

    Published on

    The Deputy Public Prosecutor (DPP) Noordin Haji has charged four police leaders and eight subordinate cops with murder in the death of Baby Samantha Pendo, which occurred during the 2017 General Election.

    With a public declaration, Haji removed the four most senior authorities in charge of the Nyalenda, Nyamasaria, Kondele, and Obunga informal communities in Kisumu city

    A police commissioner, an assistant superintendent, an assistant chief inspector, and a chief inspector were all named offenders.

    According to the DPP, it is imperative that the police be held responsible for their acts and that there be a clear chain of command in the force after the 2017 elections.

    DPP Haji remarked that the failure of the office of the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) to identify officers suspected of committing the crimes contributed to the case’s delay.

    After reviewing the evidence, however, it became clear that top national police officials were responsible for the assaults and the death of Baby Pendo, as well as other crimes, including torture, rape, and sexual abuse.

    The DPP has requested that the Independent Policing and Oversight Authority (IPOA) conduct a prosecution-guided inquiry into the murder case.
