THE NEW ZEALAND GOVERNMENT IS DETERMINED TO SEE THE KILLERS OF TARANAKI BORN PHOTOGRAPHER BROUGHT TO JUSTICE...
The thirty three year old New Zealand born photographer, Trent Keegan, was found after being robbed, beaten to death and left in a ditch in Nairobi,Kenya in May 2008.
Two local men were charged with assaulting and robbing Mr Keegan, but were later acquitted. Nobody has yet been charged with the New Zealander's murder.
The NZ Foreign Affairs Minister, Murray McCully told the media recently that Foreign Affairs were seeking further information from Kenyan authorities in regards to the case, and whether an appeal would be lodged and further investigations undertaken.
His sister, Nikki McKinnon, has moved back to New Zealand with her Australian cameraman husband to live. She wants to support her parents who reside in New Plymouth.
The family are disappointed and feel the NZ government could be doing much more than they have so far. They feel the government has failed to honour its promise to investigate the matter further.
