Third Monday of Demonstrations at Anniversary Tower in Nairobi as the Coalition for Reform and Democracy (CORD) continues to challenge the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) who they ask for the head of the Chairman Hassan Ahmed Issack who has questions towards partisan role toward the ruling regime.
The CORD has the rights to question an appointed Commission who seems to serve the Jubilee Alliance Party (JAP), the Executive President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto. They are using the security forces to disperse citizens who demonstrate with escalating violence. The Nairobi Metropolitan Police have today gone too far.
Seeing the vicious Police Officers beating on a citizens, kicking and using all kind of means to hurt fellow citizens are not justice. That is violating their right to demonstrate and show peaceful disobedience. Would be different if the stole from shop or even destroyed a street vendor who pays the Kanjo Kingdom and the Nairobi County Officials.
The Pre-Election period will not be peaceful when the Nairobi Metropolitan Police, tear-gas and use water-cannons like they are trying to kick them as far away from the Central Nairobi as possible, while the other Police Officers uses their sticks to beat and kick the demonstrators while they are laying on the ground.
The videos and footages shows the violence from the authorities who doesn’t care really care about their citizens. The Police just treat the public as cattle… they do not give the credit or respect that the people should have. Instead the Police are chasing and hitting them. Spreading fear and initiating violent behavior.
The CORD might be wrong, but if not then the JAP is totally wrong for hiring Police Officers who without any form of justice attacks fellow citizens. They are acting as the people are criminals before their innocent. They are trial on the street shows they are guilty of questioning the Electoral Commission, instead of silencing their voice and except what the Government and Institutions are serving them.
The Kenyan Government should have the charm and ability to be capable of having streets of protestors without turning violent towards the ones who demonstrate, if they are against maggots or lice they should still be done in peace; as much as the ones who wants to have an really independent Electoral Commission. That should not be a crime! A crime is to violate the law, not jumping on the street claiming that the Electoral Commission are far from independent; but the action of the Police towards the citizens shows that they must be a bit right.
The Kenyan Government would not have problem of being question if the citizens was wrong, the Police Force would not answer in violence if they wasn’t afraid of the truth and the Electoral Commission would not answer with silence while the citizens are beaten to pulp on the streets by Police Officers. Anti-Riot Police and their water cannons would not disperse and use the force of violence as they did today. Peace.
