Pu­n­ish po­lice of­fi­cers who as­saulted our 2 of­fi­cials, Mom­basa lawyer tells Boin­net

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Coast -

Mom­basa county has de­manded In­spec­tor Gen­eral of Po­lice Joseph Boin­net pu­n­ish some of­fi­cers for as­sault­ing its of­fi­cials. At­tor­ney Mta­laki Mwashimba wants in­spec­tor Joseph Kin­uthia and other po­lice of­fi­cers, not named, to be charged, say­ing they took or­ders from a civil­ian. “The al­leged pro­pri­etor Jabez Oduor, in the com­pany of po­lice of­fi­cers, as­saulted and ver­bally abused two county staff, Idris Ab­di­rah­man and Irene Wan­jiru,” he said in a let­ter dated Novem­ber 7. The at­tor­ney re­ferred to a scuf­fle that broke out on Sun­day in Nyali over a dis­puted plot. County askaris tried to de­mol­ish its perime­ter wall but were con­fronted e by po­lice. Kon­gowea MCA Oduor says the plot be­longs to him. The po­lice said they were pro­tect­ing prop­erty in­volved in a law­suit, en­forc­ing a court or­der, bar­ring tres­pass­ing, ex­ca­va­tion and dig­ging.
