Kimaiyo given 2 weeks to end Lamu curfew

16 October 2014, 18:30 William Korir

Nairobi - The Law Society of Kenya will sue Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo if the curfew in Lamu is not lifted.

Through chairman Eric Mutua Thursday, the LSK said the curfew was illegal and urged Kimaiyo to end it in two weeks time or face the indignity of a court battle.

He said that after the two weeks have elapsed, it will have been four months since the curfew was enacted and according to him, that is completely inappropriate.

" We will file a suit on behalf of the people of Lamu in two weeks time if the order is still in place", he said at the Milimani Law Courts.

He insisted that whatever the curfew was meant to achieve should already have been by now so as to allow the people of the region to get back to their normal lives.

" The curfew has desperately affected economic and social activity in the region and needs to be addressed in a clear manner and very soon", he added.

Tourism has been severely affected first by the attacks in the region that have seen over 100 people killed and then the curfew.

However, Kimaiyo has said that the curfew has killed off any terror activities in the County and that there are still operations being run by security agencies in the region.

" The curfew will remain in existence until security operations in the region are completed and there is the sense of safety reclaimed, he said when extending the curfew.

According to police, there are still gangs hiding in the vast Boni forest and that they still pose a danger to citizens without a curfew in place.

Goodwill though is growing thinner by the day, with residents failing to understand why to this day, no one has been charged in court and sent to jail over the killings which started in June.
