The Law Society of Kenya (LSK) and Azimio la Umoja One Kenya have submitted a report on 39 missing persons from the anti-Finance Bill 2024 protests to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI). Families of protest participants continue to report unaccounted-for individuals.

Many protesters are still hospitalized due to injuries, and the LSK vows to seek legal action on their behalf. The society aims to support victims of police brutality in court, accusing the government of excessive force.

At Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH), the family of Annex Kanyi, a missing 20-year-old protester, is desperately searching for him. Kanyi has been missing since Tuesday, leaving his family in distress.

Kanyi’s case is one among over 30 families facing similar anguish. His aunt, Mama Njoroge, expressed their desperation to know his whereabouts, whether he is dead or detained.

LSK President Faith Odhiambo assured that the society would offer legal support to the victims once discharged from the hospital, including a woman injured by a stray bullet.

In Mombasa, a family seeks justice for Ahmed Mohammed, 23, hit by a stray bullet. In Kiambu County, 21-year-old Evans Kiratu, who died after being struck by a tear gas canister, was laid to rest, with his family demanding justice for his death.
