Police launch investigations into shooting of prominent Meru lawyer


Police in Meru County are investigating the shooting of a prominent lawyer known for filing cases against common injustices by government agencies.

Kirimi Mbogo, a controversial lawyer owing to the combative nature of the cases he handles, was Wednesday evening waylaid by two men on a motorcycle as he exited his office. The unknown assailants shot him and left him for dead.

According to witnesses, the two people on a motorbike appeared to have waited for him to leave the office.

They approached him and shot at him, before taking off in a rush. The lawyers now claim this was nothing short of an execution plan.


The area Police Commander echoed this saying, “We have launched investigations, whoever did this let me assure you we will get them.”
