Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua condemned the killing of the man who was run over by vehicles heading to a meeting called by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

During the burial of Christopher Ndiritu, Mr Gachagua gave authorities a 14-day ultimatum to arrest the killer.

Reports alleged that Nderitu was run over by two vehicles said to be part of the convoy of government vehicles that were headed to the President’s meeting with Mt Kenya leaders in Sagana last week.

“This man we are burying today was killed like an animal. He was knocked by a vehicle. The vehicle did not stop. Another one ran over him and did not stop,” Gachagua told mourners.

Gachagua said they will ensure Ndiritu’s widow and his children get justice.

“Blood of a human being is not of a goat or chicken. These leaders are here to assure this family of justice. Someone cannot just die like that,” the MP said.

Protesting Killing

Nominated MP David Sankok also spoke giving the President and the police IG Hillary Mutyambai 14 days to nab the official whose car knocked and killed Ndiritu.

“I am telling police IG and even our President, I am telling him, I have given a 14-day ultimatum for justice to be served on my brother Christopher,” Sankok warned.

“Failure, all people with disability in Kenya shall demonstrate to State House, or anywhere else where we will get justice for our brother. Even if we will be killed, we are ready,” he added.

Records from the National Transport and Safety Authority have revealed the owner of the vehicle involved in an accident that killed a disabled man in Nyeri over the weekend.

According to records, one of the vehicles is owned by former Embu Senator Lenny Kivuti. However, it has not been established whether Kivuti was in the vehicle during the accident.

Eyewitnesses account states that the first vehicle threw the victim, Chris Nderitu, off the wheelchair while two others that were closely following behind ran him over.
