On the 16th of November a fortnight ago, Dennis Kimani, a middle aged man was brutally murdered. Dennis, who was deaf and dumb met his death while in a matatu headed to Kahawa West from the Nairobi CBD when it was hijacked by robbers. He found himself on the wrong side of the unfoldings drama as he could not hear the orders that were being barked at them by the robbers who then killed him in what they interpreted as ‘lack of co?operation’. And as friends and family gathered to lay him to rest in Mathira, in the county of Nyeri, questions now linger on the safety of the deaf in the society.
