A 70-year-old man (name withheld) has been allegedly assaulted and almost sentence to his grave on Tuesday, June 23, 2020 in Kenyan for refusing to hand over his landed property to Land grabbers.
PARADISE NEWS learnt that this is becoming a custom in some part of the country where old people are being killed over their piece of land.
The victim’s child who took to social media (Twitter) to demand for justice said it is now a recurrent event and she and her father have suffered similar incident by the same group of people over the last 10 years.
“This is my father. He is 70+ yrs, he was almost killed today. In my part of Kenya it’s normal to kill old people to get their land.
“Almost 10 yrs ago, 30+ people funded by a local tycoon burnt every single thing we owned and took part of that land. Lets see if there will be justice”, the victim’s child tweeted using the handle, @KhatWoman007.
Continuing, @KhatWoman007 said: “We are back at home…while away, the man broke his own shop windows.
“So the police will be on the ground tomorrow – lets see who in my family gets the ‘fix’
“Tomorrow, I write about my treatment at the police station and why it’s so hard to find justice in this country when justice is the last concern to the gatekeepers.
“We are anxious due to the 2 past arsons – we have managed to rebuild each time.
“I will give a video update with my Baba once he’s feeling better.
“Am overwhelmed by the DMs and texts – will respond ASAP”.
