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!" For the latest on national news, politics, sport, entertainment and more follow us on Twitter and like our Facebook page!
