A family in Kitengela, Kajiado County is crying for justice following the death of their son on Christmas day.

A family in Kitengela, Kajiado County is crying for justice following the death of their son on Christmas day.

According to the family, 21-year-old Emmanuel Kasuu had spent the night out with friends at a party at Noonkopir village on December 25. He is said to have left the venue at around 6.30 am the next day.

Kasuu's father, Pastor Gideon Muthusi, said the deceased was in the company of others when he left home and had promised to come back after the party.

This was never to be as his body was found at the Kitengela Sub-county Hospital Mortuary on Thursday morning.

Muthusi denied that his son had ever been associated with crime and wondered what could have happened to him. ‘’I have been living with my son here and never associated him with crime. He is very obedient,’’ said the grieving father.

The family is questioning the police report indicating that the deceased was a suspected criminal killed by a mob during a boched robbery.

“We suspect foul play. There’s no way that our son was beaten by a mob. How come he only suffered broken legs and had no injuries in other parts of the body? asked Muthusi.

When The Standard crew visited the Kitengela morgue, a handful of friends and relatives including those who accompanied the deceased to the party had gathered, demanding to see the body.

According to the mortuary attendant, the body was booked into the morgue at around 11am on Thursday with injuries on both legs.

“We spent the whole night with Emmanuel at the party. He left the next morning on his bicycle at around 6.30am. That was last time I saw him alive, ’’ said Moses Were.

Festus Nyamai, who also attended the party described Kasuu as polite and denied claims the deceased was involved in crime. “Police are hiding the truth about his death from us. We are pleading with the relevant authorities to investigate this matter’’ said Nyamai.

A detective who asked not to be named told The Standard that the deceased was in the company of four men, who attempted to rob a home but were confronted by the residents prompting others to escape and leaving behind the deceased.

It is alleged that Kasuu was beaten to death.
