Residents complain as terror police raid South C, arrest 40

15 April 2014, 17:12 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - There were complaints, harsh words and at times tears but nothing stopped police from raiding Nairobi's South C area and arresting upto 50 people in the ongoing war on terror.

The raid was conducted Monday evening and Tuesday morning in the Nairobi suburb which is popular with residents of Somali and Hindu origin.

Police initially arrested close to 300 persons who did not have any identification and eventually after vetting, arrested 40, who were taken to the Kasarani detention camp where victims of such swoops have been sent to.

The raid took place as police and government officials said they would continue with the raids in the city as long as they feel there are criminal elements.

A similar raid that is taking place in Eastleigh has seen thousands arrested and arraigned in Kasarani, awaiting completion of validation of their status.

According to Administration Police Spokesman Masoud Mwinyi, the raids are warranted by the ongoing war on terror and general insecurity and will continue regardless of the pressure by civil society groups to stop the process.

" It is a valid process and will continue, both in Eastleigh, South C, Mombasa and in any other area we feel needs the operation, he said.

He confirmed that of those arrested in South C, none had proper identification.

" They did not have identification which is why they have been taken to Kasarani. Those that produced their ID on the ground were let go, he added.

Residents though complained that they were harassed by police despite having the correct documentation.

" My son was arrested despite producing identification and when I presented myself as his parent, I was beaten and nearly arrested too, Ali Mohammed Hassan, a born and bred Kenyan of Somali descent said of the South C raids.
