Sex workers in the United Kingdom are calling for justice for Wanjiru's murder, asks British soldier involved in the case be extradited.
The sex workers groups assembled outside the Ministry of Defence office to call for justice for Wanjiru on December 17.
The English Collective of Prostitutes, All African Women's Group, Women Against Rape, SWARM, were among groups that called for justice for Agnes and other workers whose voices were not heard.
"We honour and mourn sex workers globally who have been victims of violence and murder. Today is also a day of resistance - we’re outside the Ministry of Defence to call for justice for Agnes Wanjiru, a Kenyan sex worker and mother murdered by a British Army soldier," the English Collective of Prostitutes tweeted.
ECP said sex workers have been speaking about police violence for decades.
"The police, the military and other institutions of the state can no longer hide behind their cover-ups. They can’t hide from our fury. They can’t hide from our demands for justice. We call for justice for Agnes, and for all of us," ECP said.
"Next year will be 40 years since we occupied a Church to protest police illegality and racism. Until now our words have largely fallen on deaf ears and many women whose lives could have been saved, died as a result."
The group also protested racism and other discrimination which mean that women of colour, migrants, trans women are the vast majority of sex workers who lose their lives to violence.
On December 2, DCI Director George Kinoti said his officers from the homicide unit were ready to travel to the United Kingdom to conclude investigations into the brutal murder of Agnes Wanjiru by British soldiers.
Kinoti said the elite homicide unit of the police were only waiting for feedback from UK authorities before they swing into action.
He said the Foreign Affairs ministry had already written to the UK seeking mutual legal assistance to ensure justice is served in the decade-old murder.
