Kenya police officers arrested after a deadly shooting incident

Two police men in Kenya have been arrested in relation to a shooting which led to the death of two people.

Names of the two victims were given as Aden Abdi Madobe and Muhiyadin Adow Shibin.

A full scale investigation has been launched by Kenya’s police watchdog into the shooting.

It will involve a  “forensic analysis” of the officers’ guns.

Campaigners have raised concerns about policing during the pandemic.

Per what Amnesty International is saying, Kenyan officers have killed 21 people since March for failing to comply with coronavirus prevention measures such as curfews and mask-wearing.

In the early part of this month, police in the capital Nairobi fired tear gas and arrested several protesters taking part in the annual Saba Saba march – a protest event which started 30 years ago against the autocratic regime of then-President Daniel arap Moi.
