Lawyer Kimani was killed back in 2016 alongside his driver  Josephat Mwendwa and taxi driver, Joseph Muiruri causing an uproar among Kenyans and the legal fraternity at large.

Investigations into the murder saw the arrest of the three police officers who were found guilty of the incident on July 22nd.

One other police officer identified as Leonard Mwangi was also implicated in the murder but the court found insufficient evidence to link him to the said murder.

Lawyer Willie Kimani’s woes began in 2015 when he took over the case of Josephat Mwenda who had been accidently shot Fredrick Leliman for allegedly flaunting traffic laws.

Threats followed the two before they went missing and their bodies discovered on June 1st, 2016 in a river in Ol Donyo Sabuk.
