Action taken after girl was allegedly shot during Wizkid’s concert
A girl was shot in her car over the weekend...
Posting a message on one of their social media pages IPOA stated “IPOA calls upon witnesses to an alleged shooting incident where a police officer was caught on video walking away after shooting a lady.”
IPOA prides itself in “conducting impartial and independent investigations, inspections, audits and monitoring of the National Police Service to prevent impunity and enhance professionalism in the interest of the public.”
The action was taken after outrage on social media after a lady was allegedly shot in the hand by a rogue cop for no reason at all. In the footage taken at the KICC gate near City Hall the police is seen dashing away amid a civilian confronting him and telling him to record a statement. When the cop tried to conceal his face, the person taking the footage pulled it down. Feeling cornered, the policeman said “Nitakuua” (I will kill you) before running into Uhuru Park. The person who recorded the footage did not pursue him as he feared for his life. The guy behind the footage identified only as George has been lauded as brave in the face of impunity by a section of Kenyans while others felt that cursing out the cop was too risky.
Anyhow, let’s see if IPOA will take any action when the witnesses comes forward.
