The two police officers present, stand over the body of the boy nonchalantly as they make small movements as if to ensure that the boy is dead.

The two are police officers attached to the Kenya Police unit.

This comes shortly after a 17 -year-old boy was reported dead in Kasarani pointing to another case of extrajudicial killing by the police after area residents held demonstrations.

The 17-year-old boy, Stephen Machurusi, was killed and a man shot and wounded as the violent demonstrations over the poor state of the Kasarani-Mwiki road in Nairobi entered the third day on Thursday, residents insisting that repairs must be carried out immediately.

The reports sparked more demonstrations in the area, with residents demanding justice for the boy and the man, who was receiving treatment at a local clinic.

This saw the intervention of Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja who said the Kasarani road that led to protests would be repaired immediately.

Speaking on Thursday afternoon, the Senator expressed his dismay over the chaos that marred transport operations on the Kasarani-Mwiki- Njiru road.

“We shall not have a state of anarchy in Nairobi, the formula for getting our roads done is not through chaos,” Sakaja said.

He, however, tried to appease the residents saying that an agreement had been reached with the Kenya Urban Roads Authority (KURA) for a contractor to be on the site within the hour to commence repair works.
