Kenyans were left with a bitter taste in the mouth after photos of police officers brutally beating up Mlango Kubwa MCA, Patricia Mutheu, went viral.
So violent was the beating that she was left with injuries. The DPP has assured Kenyans that action is being taken against the officers.
Among the many Kenyans who have called out the police for their brutality is music producer Tedd Josiah.
Taking to his social media page Tedd Josiah said it’s a high time women took a stand and said no to violence.
‘I ALWAYS KEEP IT CLEAN ALWAYS KEEP IT POSITIVE AND ALWAYS KEEP IT LOVING BUT WHAT CLEAN POSITIVE LOVING CAPTION CAN I GIVE THIS? I WANT ALL THE PEOPLE WHO SPEAK UP AGAINST VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN TO PICK THIS UP. BECAUSE VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN DOESN’T ONLY HAPPEN IN THE HOME, WOMEN FACE IT AT WORK, ON THE STREETS, IN THE CORRIDORS OF POWER AND EVERYWHERE THEY GO. THESE ARE VERY DARK MEN WITH VERY DARK SOULS BROKEN AND BEING USED TO CUT EVERYTHING THEY TOUCH.’
LET YOUR LEADERS KNOW THIS IS A BAD IDEA AND THE ENTIRE POLICE FORCE NEEDS TO UNDERSTAND THAT EACH AND EVERYONE OF THEM CAME FROM A WOMAN’S BODY. RESPECT ✊🏾 OUR WOMEN. THESE POLICEMEN MUST BE VIOLENT AT HOME. THIS IS A PICTURE OF WHAT THEY DO IN THEIR HOUSES. SO TAKE A MOMENT LADIES AND THINK ARE U SAFE IN THIS SPACE YOU CALL HOME (KENYA)
AND SHOULD U PRETEND NOTHING HAPPENED….? WE SAW A COP DRAG A WOMAN WITH HIS BIKE JUST LAST MONTH. LADIES TAKE A STAND’
What is the most brutal thing done to you by a police officer?
