The residents vowed not to bury the two men whose bodies are lying at Karachuonyo District Hospital Mortuary until the corporal is transferred and the two forest guards are arrested and prosecuted. “We are giving the OCPD a two-day ultimatum to handle this matter or we will storm the police station and bury the bodies there in protest,” said Juma Kodongo, a villager. However, the area OCPD appealed for calm and promised to act on the matter. “Let wananchi not take law into their hands. We will investigate the matter but I am appealing to anyone with information on the bribery claim to come forward and furnish me with the information. Police officers are employed to uphold law, protect Kenyans and not kill or take bribes,” Ms Nasio said.
