The family of the late Judy Wanjiku, who a few months ago was thrown out of moving matatu in Thika is crying foul after police fail to provide them with an abstract six months after the fatal incident.
Through their lawyer Collins Wanderi, they are requesting the police to hasten the issuance of the abstract or at least give them a written explanation why they have refused and/or neglected to do so in line with the provision of article 47 of the constitution.
“We would appreciate if you applied your mind to the mental anguish and suffering the family of the deceased is going through and hasten the issuance of the abstract or at least give them a written explanation why you have refused and/or neglected to do so in line with provision of the Article 47 of the constitution, the National Police Service Act and the Fair Administration Action Act,” stated in part of the letter.
The late Wanjiku’s father said that they have been left out of the process and they have not received any communication from the police.
Wanjiku who boarded a matatu in Ruiru, was said to have been thrown out of the moving matatu by the driver after an argument.
According to the eyewitnesses, the diver tried to run over the victim after pushing her.
Wanjiku was rescued by car wash attendants.
Wanjiku, who was working with Equity Bank reported the incident at the Juja Police Post.
The employee of Equity bank later died due to internal injuries.
