Kenya probes into killing Somali National in Nairobi

Nairobi County Police Commander Japheth Koome on Saturday appeared to justify the killing of an unarmed man in Eastleigh in broad daylight.

Mr Koome said that the man, seen in a video that went viral writhing in pain as a plainclothes police officer pumps multiple bullets into his body, had killed a police officer on Friday.

"I buried a corporal from Kayole yesterday (Friday). The same gangsters shot dead another officer yesterday. Tell all gangsters out there that when they kill an officer, I am ruthless and they will get it from me. And you can quote me on that,” Mr Koome said.

But the Independent Policing Oversight Authority yesterday said it had started investigations "and if there is culpability, ensure those responsible face the full force of the law.”

Mr Koome was later quoted in other media as saying that the video that was widely shared was acted, with Inspector-General of Police Joseph Boinnet taking a more diplomatic tone.

"The law is very clear. And do not push me to contradict the law (support the killing). I have said my position is clear that an investigation will be done,” Mr Boinnet said.
