President Uhuru Kenyatta’s recent remarks praising the police force for staying firm during the electioneering period continues to receive backlash from a host leaders.
Busia Women Representative Florence Mutua , Matayos MP Geoffrey Odanga MP and nominated MP Godfrey Osotsi now want President Kenyatta to come clear over the remarks considering that a number of people lost their lives in the hands of police.
It is alleged that police killed mainly opposition supporters.
The MPs spoke separately in two functions in Busia County over the weekend.
“Kenyans have eyes and ears. Baby Pendo, Mutinda and Moraa were not involved in the demonstrations but were shot by the police. The least we expected our president to say was that investigations will be done and the perpetrators have been arraigned in court.
It is saddening for us mothers to give birth and our children die at tender ages. We say no police brutality and impunity. Uhuru come out and say our people were killed and killers have been taken to court,” Mutua said.
On his part Osotsi claimed that Jubilee is trying to degenerate the country into a police state when the constitution allow freedom of assembly.
” The police should behave with decorum and guard all Kenyans equally as per their motto “Watumishi Kwa Wote” (Service to all)instead of being teargas happy and killing people irrationally.
Odanga sent a passionate plea to President Kenyatta to bring everybody on the negotiating table to enable the Country Move forward.
