Within hours of its establishment, Mchanga fundraising for the families of those killed and injured during the anti-finance bill demonstrations raised almost Sh14 million.

Through Mchanga, Kenyans have contributed at least Ksh 24 million as of Friday morning, June 28, to support those who had been victims of police brutality during the tragic demonstrations against the finance bill.

Over 32,204 Kenyans had given Ksh 24,000.827 through Mchanga, exceeding the Ksh 10 million goal.

Paybill: 891300; Account: INJURED; or via USSD: *483*57*100386# are the Mpesa support details.

As of Thursday night, human rights organisations stated that over 700 Kenyans had suffered abuse in the hands of anti-riot police, at least 40 people died during the demonstrations, and that a startling number of injuries had resulted from gunfire.

” Thousands turned out in support of democracy, now let’s ensure those unjustly injured receive medical attention. Join us to ensure this cause succeeds,” Mchanga statement read in part.

It further stated that regrettably, a great deal of demonstrators were gravely injured as a result of the police’s unjustified use of force in response to the nonviolent demonstrations.

” Public support from medics, lawyers, businesses and ordinary Kenyans have been phenomenal. We still need your support to assist with the medical expenses of those seriously injured, or hospitalized,” the statement continued.

Susan Silantoi, a member of the Health Executive Committee, reported that City Hall had verified six bodies at the City Mortuary and a comparable number at Mama Lucy Kibaki Hospital.

” The 12 were received yesterday by the the respective mortuary attendants in the respective facilities,” she said

The most recent protest-related death included a five-year-old child who was shot and killed on Thursday night in Ongata Rongai.
