What you need to know:

  • Adjourned and postponed hearings is another issue that victims seeking justice have complained about.
  • Public funds can be deployed to care for the families of those who have been harmed, or even the harmed themselves, if they are alive.

Two murder trials of significant public interest have reappeared in court, and both are cases of tragic and violent deaths of young women. The first was the 2018 murder of the 26-year-old Sharon Otieno and her unborn baby, and the second the 2019 murder of 25-year-old Ivy Wangeci.
