The Mombasa High Court will bring charges against six police officers from the Likoni police station who are accused of murder.
 

 

In March of 2020, these six people are thought to have killed one Hamisi Juma after beating him up for breaking the curfew rules.
 

 

At the time of the event, Juma was on his way home from a nearby hospital, where he had taken his pregnant wife when she started having labor pains.
 

 

Based on what the Independent Policing Oversight Authority (IPOA) learned from its investigations, all six suspects have been taken into custody.
 

 

After some time had passed, the authorities transmitted the file on suggestions to prosecute the six to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Noordin Hajji. Mr. Hajji then ordered that the six be charged with murder.
 

 

According to the results of the investigation, the six people were responsible for Juma's death because he died from injuries caused by the beatings he got from the police on the date in question.
 
 

"The deceased had returned home at seven o'clock in the evening, with alot of pain."
 
 

"In addition to informing his family that he had been assaulted by law enforcement, he also complained to them about his agony and the difficulty he was having breathing."
 
 

"In the end, he was unable to recover from his injuries and passed away while he was being treated at the Coast General Referral Hospital," the IPOA report read.
