Chris Kaba was a 24-year-old unarmed black man who was shot dead by a police officer in South London on September 5, 2022.
The officer who shot him was later charged with murder.
Kaba’s parents, Prosper Kaba and Helen Lumuanganu, have been at the forefront of protests and have voiced their pain in public.
They have also been searching for answers over their son’s killing and have laid their son to rest.
The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) investigation into Kaba’s death is still ongoing, and there is a potentially long legal road ahead.
During an inquest into Kaba’s death, it was revealed that he was not a suspect and was being followed by a police car without lights or sirens before he was shot dead by a firearms officer.
Kaba’s family has called for the officer who fired the fatal shot to be interviewed under caution.

Kaba’s shooting was captured on the officer’s bodycam footage, which the family was able to view after a meeting with the new commissioner of the Metropolitan police and the director general of the IOPC.
The family has been at the forefront of protests and has voiced their pain in public.
The bodycam footage of the incident has not been made public, and the family has been searching for answers over the police killing of their son.
The family was able to view some of the bodycam footage, but it is unclear what footage they were shown.
The incident has caused concern over the decision to suspend the officer who shot Kaba, and the Met Police Federation has raised concerns about this decision.
Kaba was a drug dealer with a history of firearms use, but no firearm was found at the scene of the fatal police shooting.
