We the undersigned organizations call for the immediate release of Willie Kimani, a human rights defender/lawyer, and his two associates, Josphat Mwenda and Joseph Muiruri, who were abducted by the Administration Police (AP) on 23rd June 2016. The three were abducted as they left the Mavoko Law Courts in Machakos County shortly before 12:00 pm. Willie, who works for the International Justice Mission (IJM), was in court together with IJM client Josephat Mwenda, a 24 year old father of one who before the 10th April 2015, plied his trade as a Boda boda (motor cycle) rider. This is the culmination of numerous blatant attempts to intimidate Josphat to withdraw a complaint lodged with the Independent Police Oversight Authority (IPOA) against a senior Administration Police (AP) officer stationed at Syokimau AP Camp.
