The government has not even consoled us - George Mokaya

Nine-year old Stephanie Moraa who was shot dead in Mathare during the 2017 August post-election chaos was buried on Friday August 25.

Moraa, who was on the balcony of a flat in Mathare North area, fell victim to a stray bullet that hit her; killing her on the spot.

Mr. Mokaya went on to demand justice for his daughter claiming that the government had kept them out of the loop in regards to the investigations surrounding her death.

“We want the circumstances surrounding her death to be investigated to their logical conclusion,” he was quoted by the Daily Nation.

Family members further reiterated Mr. Mokaya’s sentiments.

“We cannot come to terms with the death. This is a loss we have refused to accept and we want explanations from the government,” said Jackson Mokaya, Stephanie Moraa’s uncle.

Stephanie Moraa’s mother, Damacline Moraa, expressed her disappointment in the fact that her daughter fell victim to something that she did not even understand.

Police had, during the wake of the riots, denied using live bullets on the protestors.

Stephanie Moraa was a Standard Four pupil at Mathare Primary School.

She was buried in Kisii County.

May she rest in peace.
