A family from Aleles Kakapel location, Busia county is crying for justice after a one year old baby died in a police cell. According to the reports, police arrested one woman with her sick one year old baby and locked them up at Malaba police cell for selling Changaa. It is alleged that the woman pleaded with the officers to allow her to take the baby to the hospital but to no avail. Unfortunately, the condition of the baby worsened until the child died inside the police cell.
The above act has angered Kenyans. People now want the government to take action to everyone who is responsible for the death of the baby. Cases of police brutality in Kenya is becoming rampant. We all know that selling Changaa is illegal in Kenya. However, every Kenyan has a right to life despite the offense one has committed. Therefore, in my own opinion I think what the officers have done to an innocent child is wrong and should be thoroughly investigated.
