“Postmortem has been done and that is a progress we have made. The contribution of investigators and witnesses is very crucial and we ask them to play their part,” said Kiptoo.

Area Ollesos ward MCA Emmanuel Mengeech and his Kilibwoni counterpart Cynthia Muge had accompanied the speaker.

Mengeech regretted that the demonstration against the brutal killing of Lazarus Tirop in Ollesos turned violent resulting in burning of police houses.

“Emotions went out of proportion because of the brutal nature of the killing. We need to emphasis for some sobriety whenever we are demonstrating,” said Mengeech.
