Afande wamechoka!:Uproar As Police Officer Captured On Video Encouraging Killing By Mob Justice

A police officer claiming to be an OCS in Bondeni sparked reactions on social media after he was captured inciting citizens to lynch criminals.

In the video that went viral on Friday, the officer clad in full police attire is seen urging the congregation to treat crime suspects with contempt, claiming that they would be acting within their mandate.

Citing the surging cases of crime in the country, the officer said persons behind such attacks deserve no remorse and thus urged the public to take the law into their own hands and kill the offenders.

“Kama mtu si peaceful, you assault that person as you wait for the police, kweli?” posed the officer as the audience applauded.

He added: “Kama mtu amefanya kitendo tunasema hot pursuit, amedunga mtu, bado the incident is still fresh, huyo mtu auwawe… That is the proper interpretation of the law.”

According to the officer, his perceived way of handling crime will save the larger majority in society by doing away with criminals.

He went ahead to blame the law for the high crime rate stating: “Why are we interpreting the law to favour criminals and to disadvantage good people in society?”

“We cannot allow few individuals who are criminal to continue disturbing the majority of the society… that one is not protected in the law,” he said amidst cheers from the audience.” Out of a population, if 3% is disturbing the people, we eliminate the 3% by killing to save the 97%.”

The officer likewise defended his assertions while referring to Article 24 of the Constitution, which according to him vests powers on the people and police to lynch murder suspects.

“Article 24 of this Constitution says certain rights can be limited, these are rights which can be limited…and the right to life is one right which can be limited,” he said.

He added: “Nani anasema hii katiba hairuhusu kuua? Inaruhusu…Article 24, the limitation Clause, Article 51 of the UN charter; if someone commits a crime by killing another, anafuatwa under hot pursuit na pia auawe.”

The aforementioned Clause in the Constitution indicates that: “A right or fundamental freedom in the Bill of Rights shall not be limited except by law, and then only to the extent that the limitation is reasonable and justifiable in an open and democratic society based on human dignity, equality and freedom.”

A section of Kenyans criticized the officer’s remarks saying they were meant to mislead the public and promote extra-judicial killings and lawlessness.
