Justice For Kenyan Baby Killed During Post-Poll Chaos

A glimmer of hope has shone through the darkness of pain and loss, as an inquest into the death of Samantha Pendo indicted five police commanders for overseeing brutality and, specifically, for the bludgeoning to death of the infant. The six-month-old girl died after being hit by a police officer during an operation to stop demonstrations that were held to disrupt the announcement of the presidential poll results.
