The state of sorrow mood is currently being witnessed in the ongoing burial of two slain Kianjokoma brothers.

Mammoth mourners have turned up to witness the burial of the two brothers in the funeral service that is currently underway at Kianjokoma primary school.

The two will are being laid to rest at their father’s farm in Kithangari Kianjokoma in Embu North.

Benson Njiru Ndwiga 22 and his brother Emmanuel Mutura,19, were arrested by police last week and later their bodies were found at Embu level 5 hospital mortuary.

Their death remains a mystery as police said that the two jumped out of a fast-moving vehicle after they were arrested by police for contravening curfew hours.

Postmortem which was conducted at Embu level 5 hospital on the bodies of the two brothers showed they had multiple head injuries occasioned by being beaten with a blunt object.

The government has since transferred two Senior officers from the Manyatta police station where the police officers who arrested the duo came from.

This comes a day after CS Fred Matiangi visited their family and promised justice will prevail.
