Njoro residents march in protest of blogger's brutal murder

By Steve Mkawale | December 14th 2020

Njoro town residents on Monday held peaceful protests to condemn the gruesome murder of activist Paul Ndirangu, 35, by unknown persons.

 After collecting Ndirangu’s body from Egerton University mortuary, the protestors proceeded to the scene where the body was found and later marched through the town. They waved placards

They demanded justice saying the late activist had received numerous threats from politicians who accused him of portraying them in a bad light.

His family claimed he had reported the threats to Njoro Police Station but The Standard Digital could not immediately confirm the authenticity of the claims. The senior police officers at the station reportedly left the office for an official engagement.

 His body was found floating in River Ndarugu on Monday, December 7. He had earlier reported to the police that his life was in danger. The deceased will be buried at Njoro public cemetery today.
