KNCHR concerned over threats to human rights defenders

28 January 2015, 15:22 Nechesa Chemoi

Nairobi - The Kenya National Commission on Human Rights (KNCHR) Tuesday said it is concerned about the threats issued to human rights defenders from Narok County.

KNCHR also condemned the violence that left two people dead and scores injured during a protest against Governor Samuel Tunai over alleged corruption.

“These human rights defenders should not be harassed and/ or intimidated. Should they be required by the National Police Service, then the laid down procedures of the law should be adhered to,” KNHR said in a statement.

The commission lashed out at Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery over his orders to have the demonstration cancelled, even after the residents together with their elected representatives issued a notice to the County Commissioner to hold lawful, peaceful demonstrations and present a petition of their grievances to the governor.

“We query the premise of his actions noting that the power to permit or cancel demonstrations, protests, pickets still lies with the National Police Service as provided under the Public Order Act. This cannot be limited arbitrarily,” the commission said.

The commission said preliminary investigations revealed that bullets and blunt objects were used during the chaos and that those responsible should be arrested and prosecuted.
