Kenyans across the globe are a worried lot when they are seeing gory pictures of people being brutalized by the policemen and others being shot at a close range.
Very gory images which have been sent to our newsroom and some so graphic that we can’t publish are sending jitters down the spines of many Kenyans and are demanding answers from the Cabinet secretary incharge of security Dr. Matiangi. In one instance a video is showing innocent Motor bike riders (Boda boda) who are very innocent being brutally dislodged from his motorbike and a lady passenger and brutally beaten and his motorbike being destroyed by policemen.
The Kenyan Constitution allows any Kenyan to protest peacefully and not to disturb road users or anyone continuing with his or her business but the videos and pictures on social media paints a different story especially from the disciplined force which needs to act with professionalism in dealing with protesters but watching innocent Kenyans beaten and dragged along the streets and highway paints a gleam picture of the current government.
It’s the responsibility of the Government to provide security to the protesters and the protesters are also required to abide by the law during their protests.
