Police Officers Who Assaulted Mercy Cherono Should be Dismissed - Kimani Ngunjiri

Bahati Member of Parliament Kimani Ngunjiri now wants police officers who assaulted Mercy Cherono dismissed from the police service. 

He said the move was uncalled for and should be condemned with the strongest terms possible.

The 21-year-old woman was dragged on the streets of Nakuru’s Olenguruone town, while tied on a motorbike by police officers.

"I want to condemn the police brutality against Mercy Cherono with the strongest terms possible, this is inhuman and all those officers involved should face the full force of the law," the Bahati MP said after visiting her in Nakuru provincial general hospital.

The deputy president William Ruto allied MP called upon IPOA and the Interior Cs Dr Fred Matiangi to move with speed and ensure Cherono gets justice.

"We are very saddened by this inhumane acts by some rogue police officers. Its unfortunate as the country is battling with corona virus some rogue police officers have brutally attacked Kenyan's for no absolute reason," he added.

Ngunjiri further said he will mobilize leaders from the region to put resources together to help the victim.

"I will mobilize my fellow MPS from Rift valley so as we can put our efforts together and see how we can give Cherono and the family a good source of Income to prevent such an incident again. We will also work closely with the family to ensure Cherono gets justice," Ngunjiri said.

He called on Kenyans to ensure they wash their hands before and after every activity, observe dusk to dawn curfew, observe one meter social distancing rule, put on facemasks and of possible stay at home to prevent further spread of COVID-19.
