Isiolo Senator condemns extrajudicial killings by KWS

Senator Dullo has condemned the gruesome murder of a young man in Kinna by the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS), terming it as a serious violation of the right to life. The vocal legislator has accused KWS of perpetrating extrajudicial killings on innocent lives in Isiolo in the disguise of fighting against poaching. “This innocent young man was killed by KWS in an area, not under their jurisdiction, and the murder scene tampered with,” reiterated the legislator. Senator Dullo has vowed to follow up on the matter until those responsible are brought to book.

Extrajudicial killings by KWS have been on the rise in Isiolo for the last couple of years and residents are worried that more lives will be lost if the matter is not handled soon. The Senator had earlier on today paid a visit to the family and condoled with them over the death of their breadwinner.
