Mark cited a number of injustices which he claimed the government has committed against innocent Kenyans and also the failure by the government to bring to book police officers who have been linked to the death of innocent Kenyans. “There are a lot of injustices in our country and this is not just about Miguna Miguna. The people who killed an innocent Kenyan like lawyer Willy Kimani, the Meru University student leader among other Kenyans, have never been brought to book,” he said. “What happened to Miguna Miguna can happen to anyone of us and that is why we must fight it now before it spirals out of control,” said Mark. “We are hoping that Kisumu governor Anyang’ Nyongo will also join us even for a single night vigil. We will not relent in our quest to ensure that the constitution is respected,” said Mark.
