Police have murdered two people in Shanzu, Mombasa, today evening.

Cops riddled 40-year-old Dickens Juma’s corpse with over 15 bullets, mostly on the chest and head.

Forty-six-year-old Mwithiaru Mtembei’s body had five bullets, many on the head.

We are following up leads to establish circumstances around this murder.

The incident coincides with the visit of United Nations special rapporteur for extrajudicial executions, Agnes Callamard.

Callamard earlier told the press that impunity attached to the use of force by police creates extremely grave danger for society and destroys the trust between people and state (muhuri.org/un-plans-probe-into-touts-murder-inside-changamwe-police-station/).

This week we held a two-day paralegal training in Lamu.

The training, attended by 20 locals, was first under Amkeni Wa Kenya II, a project that enhances access to justice, and the realization of human rights for the poor and marginalized.

Guided by the Legal Act 2016, the project puts a strong emphasis on alternative dispute resolution.

Paralegals went through basic legal procedures, a study that will help them offer free para legalism at police stations, courts, prisons, and within communities.

This project is timely and critical for the Lamu community, where, based on cases reported at our county office, the majority of locals are unable to foot legal bills.

United Nations Development Program supports this project under its Programme for Legal Aid and Delivery (PLEAD).

Seven out of over 60 Kenyans swindled out of their millions in a Dubai job scam, have recorded statements at the Director of Criminal Investigation Headquarters in Nairobi.

The group, part of the 14 who returned in the country January this year, and lodged an official complaint with us two weeks ago, had detailed how a Malindi travelling agent coned each Sh200,000, claiming she will offer jobs, some on security.

But the team, which left Kenya in September 2019, faced inhumane treatment abroad – they starved for weeks and received a travelling ban after their return. Some involved in prostitution to make ends meet.

Our rapid response officer, Francis Auma, facilitated their visit at the DCI headquarters today. Statement recordings lasted nine hours.

DCI said its sleuths will be in Malindi to probe and arrest members of the syndicate coning locals.

We ask the government to enforce laws it enacted to protect Kenyans working abroad, which largely remain just on paper.

The laws, majority targeting recruiting agencies, came into effect when the government in 2017 lifted an employment ban it placed against Gulf countries.

Through our civic education program, which is under the Social Accountability project, we recently facilitated a career guidance forum for 134 Lamu youths.

We guided the group on the best courses based on the results they attained in the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE). Some had stayed in the cold for at least a year, as they struggled with career options.

The forum aided college and university placement through the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS), a State Corporation that selects students for admission to institutes of higher learning. We also assisted the youths to initiate government-sponsored education funds.
