The brutal Murder of the People Daily Newspapers Journalist Francis Kainda Nyaruri is a heineos act that need to be condemed by all means.
Nyaruri who until his death was a corespondent based in Nyamira,was found murdered and his body found dumped in Kodera forest in Rachuonyo district.
His decomposed body was discovered after more than two weeks of search mounted by the family members and fellow journalists.
As a rural based writer the late Nyaruri speaheaded the campaign against myriad social injustices that deprived the common population within the larger Gusii districts including Rachuonyo their rightful share of justice
He will be remembered as one brave chariot that managed to dare the forces behind corrupt Government officials in Nyamira district.
Commonly known as Kainda, the late managed to wage a war on Government departments in the area over the misuse of public equipments including the commonly known as GK.
He was quoted in the local dailies recently claiming that the famous GK vehicles were common figures in weddings, funerals and other personal errands that were not beneficial to the tax payers.
His article prompted the government to put a stop to the misuse of the automotives including errands of chasing sweet bananas at famous night clubs in the region.
Its suspected that, the article that cost his life involved a scam where senior police officers in Nyamira were allegedly using substandard materials to furnish the stalled Police housing Units in Nyamira.
After the story, all the old iron sheets installed in the ultra modern facility were all pulled down and new ones put up something that angered the forces behind the scam.
The had complained again and again to the authorities fearing for his life but what do you expect when you in roger heads with the same people who are supposed to protect you.
I managed to work with Nyaruri for over three years in Gusii and I knew him as one dedicated journalist who was devoted to see justice done to his people no matter at what level.
My condolences goes to his family and all those who managed to know him.
To fellow members of the forth estate working in Gusii region ,be united, your divisions will cause you more harm than good.
You are the agents of change and if you relent on the war our people will perish. Am indeed in deep sorrow . ……….what corrupt minds can do to deprive a family a loved one.
