During an interview with Citizen TV this morning Soy constituency member of Parliament Hon Caleb Kositany and ODM party secretary General Hon Edwin Sifuna has blasted the government and the police for the inhumanity they showed Kenyans on Saturday along Thika superhighway past curfew hours. The two have also given recommendations on what the government should have done before making innocent Kenyans spend their night in the cold.
Hon Kositany in particular has reprimanded the police for making Kenyans suffer more than they already have suffered. According to Kositany, the police should have made a prior announcement before blocking the busy road because Kenyans do not break the curfew rules intentionally.
Caleb Kositany: "What happened on Saturday across Nairobi was very sad, the Government decided Kenyans should suffer more than they already have. There should have been an announcement by police prior. No one would defy curfew intentionally, "
ODM party secretary General Hon Edwin Sifuna shouldered Kositany's sentiments adding that Kenyans just like the police deserves some humane treatment. According to Sifuna, Kenyans in the past have adhered to these curfew rules and the incident along Thika Road was unfortunate.
Edwin Sifuna: "Kenyans have over the past year adhered to restrictions put in place by Govt. During voting days, polls close at 5 PM, but if you are in the line by the time, they will allow you to vote. Motorists trying to get home deserve some humanness."
