What you need to know:

  • Until his death, Yassin was a Standard Eight candidate at Ndururuno Primary School and, like other pupils, he was home after learning was stopped by the Covid-19 pandemic.

  • His father Hussein Moyo said his son was whiling his time at the balcony alongside his siblings when an officer fired a bullet that entered his body through the stomach.

Kenya Police are, once again, on the spot over brutality meted on defenceless citizens as they enforce dusk-to-dawn curfew.
