A police vehicle on Wednesday night rolled in Kimilili constituency while chasing women who were on their daily business.
According to the Kimilili constituency member of parliament Didmus Baraza, the police vehicle crashed while it was pursuing the local residents, mostly women.
“It’s unfortunate that a police vehicle while chasing women who were trying to fend for their families this evening, rolled several times injuring several people killing one innocent business lady. A Mama mboga on the spot” Wrote Didmus Baraza.
The legislator further reported that the officers have turned out to be major security threats in the region instead of protecting the people.
“It’s disturbing and ironical that law enforcement officers have turned out to be major security threat to the people they’re supposed to protect. One day they will pay heavily, it may not be today, tomorrow or a day thereafter but their day of reckoning will come any way.” He noted.
As a result, Mr. Baraza urged Karanja Kibicho, Fred Matiang’i, National Police Service, Directorate of Criminal Investigations , DCI and the Independent Policing Oversight Authority – IPOA KENYA to look into the matter.
However, the member of parliament did not specify what led to the melee and whether the locals had violated the Covid-19 containment measures imposed by the government.
