Police who were controlling the anticipations by the NASA supporters of the unsatisfactoriness by the Kenya’s electoral commission IEBC, have distanced themselves from the fatal shooting of a Form Four student during the Monday’s anti-iebc demonstrations in Kisumu county.
Kisumu County Police Commander Titus Yoma said he had ordered investigations into the shooting of Michael Okoth, 18, after reports that the Vihiga High School student was killed by a man wearing dreadlocks but dressed in police uniforms.
This shocking revelation by the police comes in the wake of complaints by National Super Alliance (NASA) leaders that members of outlawed gangs had infiltrated the police and were killing their supporters.
In the past week, Kisumu Governor Professor Peter Anyang’ Nyong’o complained that a group of well organised groups could be behind the destruction of property and stoning of police officers to fuel more confrontations during the anti-IEBC demos.
Below is a statement by Kisumu Governor Prof. Anyang’ Nyong’o:-
“There are people who have been stoning the police and looting supermarkets to portray the people of Kisumu as violent and destructive. I doubt if these are NASA supporters. Something is not adding up.
I do not have any officer sporting dreadlocks.”
