The Kenya police is mandated by the constitution to always keep law and order and protect citizens in any form of harm. The police equally is not mandated to take the law into their own hands and punish offenders but rather they should arrest and bring to a court of law to be charged. This has not been the case here in Kenya as most police officers tends to overlook their mandate of protecting and start engaging in criminal activities.
An illustrative photo
In a late night video shared by blogger Robert Alai, the police in Lodwar Hospital, Turkana County is seen assaulting a young man within the facility premises. The man is seriously being flogged while being forced to lie down as he pleads for help. It's not clear what the man had done to deserve such a thorough beating. Angry Netizens expressed mixed reactions to the video as shown below;
"Waah, what's up with our officers? This is wrong," Allano.
"Police officers should undergo another training in Kiganjo just to instill discipline in them," Gatwiri.
"This is serious, arrest rather than beat," Sheila
