Lamu leaders protest arrests

11 August 2014, 16:57 Ken Wekesa

Lamu - Lamu political leaders have expressed their concerns over the missing 70 people suspected to have been arrested by the police in conjunction with KDF in the ongoing security operation in the area to fish out criminals suspected to be hiding in the forest.

Speaking in Lamu county, Governor Issa Timmamy said the arrested suspects should be arraigned in court to avoid creating unnecessary tension over missing people.

“If someone is arrested and found guilty, they should be taken to court within the stipulated time,” said Timmamy.

He said the leaders in the area will not allow the unexplained arrests to continue since the locals cannot ascertain where the arrested people are being held.

"I was arrested like a criminal and spent a week in the police remand. We strongly condemn such operations and want the government to explain why they are arresting Lamu people, where they are holding them after arrest, and when they will be arraigned in court,” said Timmamy.

The governor's sentiment were echoed by Lamu west Legislator, Julius Ndegwa who said parents of the missing youths cannot establish the whereabouts of their family members and have been contacting him for assistance.

He said they will seek legal redress in a bid to trace the arrested people.

“Those arrested should be presented to the public. We do not want to see discrimination. We believe the attacks in the areas were carried by criminals who should be prosecuted,” said Ndegwa.
