Azimio Leaders Issue Demands Following Killing of Rex Kanyike

Azimio leaders, led by Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka, have condemned police killing of 29-year-old Rex Kanyike during yesterday’s Reject Finance Bill Protest.

The coalition has highlighted what they describe as systemic issues within the police force.

Azimio decried a series of tragic shootings that have marred the nation, pointing to a broader pattern of misconduct.

The team referenced the recent Azimio protests, during which 75 Kenyans were killed by police officers who allegedly fired live bullets into peaceful crowds.

This incident, according to the Azimio leaders, marks a disturbing return to a repressive police force rather than a service-oriented institution as mandated by the Constitution.

“Despite the publicly recorded crimes, the murders of the 75 victims are yet to be investigated and the perpetrators brought to justice. We have not forgotten and we will never forget,” Musyoka declared.

In a bold call to action, the Azimio leaders demanded the immediate resignation of Inspector General Japheth Koome and Nairobi Regional Commander Mr. Adamson Bungei, accusing them of failing to protect peaceful demonstrators.

They further urged the Director of Public Prosecution to bring charges against Koome, Bungei, and other implicated officers for the murders of the protestors.

“All Kenyans’ lives matter and to our police service, just know that one day you will be held accountable for all the lives lost,” the statement read.

Azimio also called for the immediate and unconditional release of all protestors detained illegally by state security agencies.
