LSK to prosecute officers who teargassed school children

19 January 2015, 18:54 William Korir

Nairobi - The Law Society of Kenya has said it will forma team of lawyers to prosecute police officers that fired teargas at school children.

LSK chairman Eric Mutua said that the body has formed a team of 12 lawyers to take the case forward as a matter of urgency.

He stated that it was immoral for policemen to act in the manner they did against school children.

" It is not a matter that can be swept aside. Our police officers have acted in an insensitive manner and those responsible must be punished," a visibly angered Mutua said Monday.

Police have already announced that the Langata area OCPD Elijah Mwangi has been suspended over the matter.

However, the LSK says that individual officers must also be punished.

" Not prosecuting the officers will be an injustice to the children who suffered the indignity of being mutilated by officers who should protect them," he added.

The Langata OCPD Mwangi had earlier said that the law allows prosecution of children above 8 years, a comment that has angered many Kenyans.
