Sakiusa Rabaka died of a brain hemorrhage days after he and two other youths had been detained by soldiers and a police officer, apparently after being suspected of smoking marijuana.

The boy’s mother says she has received no news of the investigation into her son’s death and will take legal action if there isn’t some progress by the end of the month.

“We have just given them a time limit for their investigations and if we do not have any response from them, then we are thinking going ahead with legal proceedings. Bring them, take them to court and bring the men that caused those injuries and caused the death of my son, to justice.”

Mrs. Rabaka says she doesn’t why there should be any delay because the police and the army know the identity of the soldiers and the police officer involved.
