Entertainers condemn teargassing of school children

20 January 2015, 13:27 Eugene Odanga

Nairobi - Caroline Mutoko joined thousands of angered Kenyans in protest after images of the Kenya police, posted at the gates of Weston Hotel throwing tear gas at Langata primary pupils, were released to the public.

The shock was evident from the reaction on social media when these images hit the internet at the lack of humanity displayed by the police men and women. Caroline Mutoko couldn’t hold back her rage at the government and the police at these vicious actions writing a lengthy post expressing her disgust

" Spare me the feeble attempt to defend the indefensible.Over the years and throughout the history of this great nation, students, teachers and parents have had demonstrations in school. There have been demonstrations about school principals, bad teachers, poor grades, ghosts in dormitories (nkt), poor food and even land grabbing... just like the case in Langata.

" Only today and in this instance have CHILDREN been tear-gased. So spare me the B.S. This nation has a rich history of school demonstrations complete with screaming students. "What were the kids doing there?" It is THEIR school and that is THEIR playground. WE DO NOT TEAR-GAS CHILDREN! PERIOD!" 

Others too showed their shock at the inbcident, with P Units Frasha condemning the incident as did Classic 105 presenter Maina Kageni.

" Our children should not go through this," Frasha said of the teargas incident.
