IG Boinnet snubs lawyers who stormed into his office
Lawyers in Nairobi on Wednesday stormed the office of Inspector-General of police Joseph Boinnet to demand to be told the whereabouts of their colleague who went missing last week.
The missing lawyer, Willie Kimani, works for the International Justice Mission (IJM). He has been missing for the last five days together with his client Josephat Mwendwa and a taxi driver Joseph Muiruri.
The three were carjacked while returning to the home of the client after a court hearing in Mavoko.
The Law Society of Kenya (LSK) has accused the Administration Police for the disappearance of the three.
The lawyers arrived at Jogoo House chanting “produce lawyer Willie.” They wore purple ribbons as a symbol of their protest.
Mr Boinnet however refused to speak with representatives of the lawyers, saying he is heading for another meeting.
The lawyers said they will keep demonstrating to Mr Boinnet’s office until the whereabouts of their colleague is known.
Mr Boinnet had earlier in the day denied claims by LSK that the police are not responsible for the disappearance of the three.
