Police are investigating the stabbing to death of a Nairobi based lawyer Boaz Nyakeri who was stabbed by an assailant as he walked home in Ongata Rongai area, Kajiado.
The Law Society of Kenya (LSK) has called on authorities to get the man who killed Nyakeri Saturday morning. Nyakeri was stabbed near Masaai Lodge in Rongai.
LSK Chief Executive Officer Mercy Wambua said the responsibility placed on advocates as court officials and human rights defenders place them at a relatively higher risk of possible attacks by adversaries.
She said that the assailants who seemed to have been trailing him stabbed him in the neck but did not steal anything from him, leaving a lot of questions as to the motive behind the attack.
Nyakeri was taken to Kenyatta National Hospital in Nairobi where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
