Kenyans were taken aback on Tuesday, August 15, when news rent the air about the demise of six-months-old baby Samantha Pendo who was admitted at the Aga Khan Hospita in Kisumu.
Baby Samantha Pendo was a victim of police brutality where she was allegedly hit with a club by anti-riot police who are said to have broken into their home as they dealt with protesters.
Kenyans in their droves vented their anger and frustrations at the heinous and barbaric acts, but no one feels the pain like Samantha's parents.
Walking out of the Aga Khan Hospital after doctors confirmed to him that his daughter had passed on, Joseph Oloo could not hold back his tears as he addressed the media outside the hospital.

"My daughter was not protesting in the streets. We were in the house. We told to vote, go home and wait for the results. That is what we did. But they came, broke into our house and beat my daughter," a teary Oloo narrated.
He demanded justice for his daughter.
"Kenyans please help me get justice for my daughter," he said.
Among those who have promised to help Oloo and his family get justice for Samantha is Siaya Senator and lawyer James Orengo.
Orengo promised to make a move after a Kenyan on Twitter asked him to do so.
