An autopsy report has determined what caused the death of the 12-year-old boy who was reportedly shot in Ongata Rongai.

The postmortem was conducted by government pathologist Peter Ndegwa at the Ongata Rongai Sub County Hospital Funeral Home on Monday, July 1, revealing that the boy died of excessive bleeding caused by a gunshot wound.

The bullet according to Ndegwa pierced through the arteries and the lungs of the 12-year-old causing severe bleeding and resulting in his death.

“He has one bullet which has entered from the right side of the body to the left side of the body through both axullar,” stated pathologist Peter Ndegwa.

“It shuttered the arteries and the veins in both axullar areas and then perforated the two lungs,” he added.

Upon the release of the autopsy results, the family of the deceased demanded that the police officer who reportedly shot the boy be brought to book immediately.

The boy’s mother shared his ambitions as a young artist, saying he had vowed to travel to the United States of America (USA) to nurture his gift and elevate their lives.

She further called out President William Ruto for his statements about the shooting incident during the roundtable interview on Sunday, June 30, where he insisted that the boy was alive despite going through the ordeal.

“Yesterday I heard President William Ruto claiming my child is not dead, but you who are here can confirm he is no more,”

“What has been confirmed is that he died from a bullet, I am not sure of the number of the bullets, let him receive justice,” she stated.

The victim was reportedly shot multiple times while heading to a friend’s house to collect a book they were sharing. He had promised his mother he would be back immediately.

His friend would soon discover that the boy passed away during the shooting in the area after he failed to show up to collect the book.

Kenyans are now applying pressure on The Independent Policing Oversight Authority (IPOA) to conduct prompt investigations and hold the perpetrators accountable following reports of police brutality across the country.
