• Locals said he was shot by police during their protests in the area.
• His body was found in his house Tuesday afternoon with a bullet wound in the ribs.
Police are investigating the discovery of a body of a 37-year-old man in his house in Tassia, Nairobi after Monday, March 27 protests.
It is believed Francis Momanyi Nyakundi was shot and injured by police before he succumbed to the injuries in his house.
His body was found in his house Tuesday afternoon with a bullet wound in the ribs.
Police who visited his house said he had a bullet wound in the left armpit, which exited through the right side of the ribs.
Locals said he was shot by police during their protests in the area.
Nairobi police boss Adamson Bungei said they are yet to ascertain the circumstances under which the man was shot and later died.
The body was moved to the mortuary pending autopsy.
This increases to three, the number of people who were shot and killed during the Monday protest.
Another person, a female waiter was injured along Juja Road.
The two were shot and killed in Kibera slums in a confrontation with police who tried to stop their protests.
The one who was injured on Juja Road was in a restaurant she was working. This happened as police opened fire on a crowd that was protesting.
And in a new twist of events, police have now been told not to open investigation files on those shot during the protests.
This is aimed at covering up the incidents that will happen, insiders said.
“However it's advisable for you not to mention officers' names after a serious encounter with not only riotous crowds but also criminals, lest it will be used against us."
"Don't use open files, and let's have restricted access to confidential information,” read a message sent to police officers by one of the commanders.
Other officers see this as illegal and against the law.
The Independent Policing Oversight Authority is investigating the deaths and injuries that have been reported so far.
Police say up to 50 officers have been injured and four vehicles damaged in the incidents.
Up to six people have been killed in the protests that were reported in various parts of the country in the past two incidents.
IPOA chairperson Anne Makori said they monitored how the police engaged in public order management in the protests.
The Authority noted and took up four matters for investigation, which will seek to establish the level of police compliance with Article 244 of the Constitution, the Public Order Act and any other laws related to public management and the use of force.
The matters under investigation include but are not limited to where police failed to provide security to private property in Nairobi.
This is in relation to the attack on the property of former president Uhuru Kenyatta and Azimiol leader Raila Odinga in Ruiru and Industrial Area.
