A family in Meru is seeking justice after their 19-year-old teenager was allegedly beaten to death by police officers.

Spencer Thuranira is said to have been hit several times in his head by police officers in Maua town two weeks ago after a riot.

A post-mortem, conducted by Chief Government Pathologist Johansen Oduor at the Nyambene Sub-county Hospital mortuary, showed that Spencer succumbed to head injuries.

The victim’s brother, Mutembei Mwithalii, claimed Spencer was on his way to buy medicine for their mother when he met police officers who had mounted a roadblock at Modern Two area.
