A video clip of police officers assaulting a man in Nakuru County has gained attention online as Kenyans called for justice.

"This unfortunate incidence occurred in Nakuru at the entrance of the National Library Services. The three policemen are from Central Police Station. I will conceal the identity of the victim who has been identified. @NPSOfficial_KE, @FredMatiangi and @IPOA_KE please, take action," Mr Havi posted after getting feedback on the incident.
