Onesmus Masaku, a Makueni based lawyer whose hand was hacked by a female policewoman is dead.


He died on Sunday morning at the Kenyatta National Hospital where he was receiving treatment following the cruel attack at his house in Wote town by the policewoman constable Nancy Njeri.


The Law Society of Kenya South Eastern Branch chairman Justus Mutisya Mutia told journalists that Masaku succumbed around noon as a result of the injuries he suffered.


Masaku was admitted immediately at Wote referral hospital in Makueni then transferred to KNH as his health worsened.


He had suffered hand injuries after his hands cut off.

Mutia has expressed that Masaku was a hard-working legal mind and said his death is a shock to many who knew him.


Mutia has promised that the law society of Kenya will take over the case.
Nancy Njeri of Makueni Police Station is yet to be charged in court, police saying investigations are underway.


The case is before Honorable Caroline Ocharo at Machakos where Njeri was charged with attempted murder.


The matter will be mentioned on 23rd October after police asked for 14 more days to complete the probe.
