The Law Society of Kenya has protested the killing of Kenya Revenue Authority lawyer Jared Ratemo whose body was found dumped along Mombasa Road, Nairobi.
Society president Isaac Okero wants Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet to move with speed and commence investigations into what he called most heinous crime.
Ratemo who worked with Customs department in Mombasa was abducted and strangled by unknown people.
Ratemo had parted ways with his wife yesterday at 7.00am in Ngara on Tuesday where he boarded a taxi to town to meet some people regarding a work related matter he was investigating. He was scheduled to be on a flight to Mombasa at around 9.45am.
From that moment he remained unreachable on his phone until yesterday morning when his body was discovered on Mombasa road at the turn off to JKIA.
Okero said the circumstances of Ratemo’s demise point to a most foul murder at the hands of people he was familiar with. This incident coming barely a month following the brutal murder of another lawyer, Ronald Lubya and one year following the brutal murder of lawyer Willie Kimani has shaken the society to its core.
