Brenda Kawira was a brilliant young woman from Tharaka Nithi County with a promising future ahead of her.
She had recently graduated with a first-class honours degree in medical biochemistry from the University of Nairobi and was set to pursue a Master’s degree in Australia, June this year.
She was working at a Nairobi-based pharmaceutical company where she had moved to after briefly serving as a Mathematics, Biology and Chemistry teacher at Kaanwa and Marimanti girls’ secondary schools in her home county.
But on February 21, 2023, her life was tragically cut short in what police at Kasarani Police Station claims is suicide.
Brenda’s family, however, do not believe this narrative. They are convinced that there is more to her death than meets the eye. They alleged that there was a cover-up at Kasarani Police Station, where the incident was reported.
According to the police report, Brenda’s boyfriend was the only witness to her supposed suicide. He claimed that they had a heated argument that night, and Brenda stormed out of the bedroom before jumping from the fourth-floor balcony of their apartment.
Brenda’s family points out the bruises found on her right thigh, left side of the neck, left cheek, and legs, as revealed in the autopsy report. They believe that these bruises are evidence that she had been murdered…
I don’t know much, but the end of the road for the rot at the Kasarani Police Station is fast approaching. Keep up the good work Simon Mwangi Muthiora
