Intellectually disabled man shot dead by Kenya Defense Forces

A twenty six year old intellectually disabled man was shot dead by Kenya Defense Forces after he threw stones at a Navy van.

 

Ndoro Mwembe threw stones at a van carrying students to the Dona Primary school. Police said that Mwembe shattered the windows of the vehicle injuring at least six students.

 

Authorities said that three police officers who were in the van chased Mwembe shooting him inside of a classroom.

 

Human rights groups in Kenya are questioning the deadly use of force by the police saying that officers had the ability to arrest the man once inside of the classroom instead of shooting him dead.
