Homabay Police decry over surge in mob justice cases.

21 May 2012, 14:39 Oduor Omondi

Police in Homabay have raised alarm over the rising cases of mob justice in the district and warned residents against the practice.

Area OCPD, Francis Kumut, said many innocent people have died at the hands of irate mobs on mere suspicion of crime and said this would not be allowed to continue.

Kumut is now advising area residents to either hand over suspects or report them to police in order to allow the law-enforcers launch proper investigations into the alleged crimes.

“If you catch a suspect before presenting them to the police, ensure you have evidence of things he/she has stolen, lest the case goes to court and due to lack of evidence, the suspect gets released,” he cautioned the residents.

He added that this would enable police arrest the actual criminals and prefer charges against them while saving innocent citizens from unjustifiable death.

The police boss also reassured residents that police have the necessary skills to investigate crimes.

The OCPD’s statement comes in the wake of Saturday’s incident where irate members of the public mercilessly stoned a middle aged man to death and later dumped his body at the Homabay bus stage. The man had allegedly snatched a mobile phone from a woman, though it was never recovered.
