Probe into the death of Makueni lawyer whose hands were chopped off by a policewoman

No one foresaw the unfortunate incident that led to the death of Makueni based lawyer, Onesmus Masaku. Constable Nancy Njeri had no idea that the incident would be the end of her career that had just begun.

The law enforcement officer was allegedly filled with rage when she attacked the lawyer in his home. She chopped off one of his hands and severed the other. Her victim, the lawyer, died on Sunday while receiving treatment at Kenyatta National Hospital.

Investigations

Joseph Ole Napeiyan, the Makueni County police boss, confirmed that they had completed investigations on the matter. As a result, they were in the process of suspending her from law enforcement before they arraign her in court on Friday.

“Investigations in this matter are complete. We shall upgrade the charge from grievous harm to murder charge when she is arraigned in court. I have sanctioned her immediate suspension,” the police boss said.

Reports allege that the lawyer and the policewoman were estranged lovers. Sources claim that the policewoman was on a revenge mission, but investigators are yet to establish if it is true.

Two weeks before his untimely death, advocate Onesmas Masaku took to his social media page to share Justice Odunga’s ruling on gender-based violence.

“Young men and women must appreciate that your girlfriend or boyfriend is not your property. He or she has the right to say no at any stage of the relationship and where according to her, she has seen the light whether before embarking on the journey or in the course of the journey to Damascus and feels that you are not the rib that was meant for him or her, you must accept the decision and move on however painful it might be,” reads part of the ruling that the late lawyer shared on his page.

Unfortunately, the lawyer died in the hands of a rage-filled partner.
