Police Shot 14yr Old Girl After She Attacked Them, Kimaiyo Says

Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo has confirmed that a preliminary report shows that police indeed shot dead a 14 year old girl in Kinango, Kwale county, last Thursday but said it was after the minor attacked the officers who had stormed her parents' home at night in pursuit of suspected criminals. Kimaiyo says the case file has now been referred to the Director of Public Prosecutions for further action. The death of the class six pupil, Kwekwe Mwandaza, whose body was hurriedly buried at night has triggered a hue and cry with calls for action against the implicated officers.
