The Independent Police Oversight Authority (IPOA) said in a statement its investigation found that officers Benjamin Changawa and Stanley Okoti killed their colleague, Joseph Obongo, and two of his relatives, saying they were robbery suspects. Obongo was a bodyguard to a lawmaker.
"The accused faced no danger to use excessive force to kill the victims and should have performed their duty in most responsible manner," Judge Stella Mutuku said in her ruling.
