Uhuru asked to intervene in missing Masjid Musa man case

20 February 2014, 13:33 Nechesa Chemoi

Mombasa - Mombasa Senator Hassan Omar says he holds President Uhuru Kenyatta responsible for the disappearance of Salim Hemed, who was arrested during the police raid on Masjid Musa.

His sentiments come after police reported that he allegedly escaped from custody after his arrest.

“I trust that President Uhuru Kenyatta recognises the heavy burden his oath of office places on him to protect and defend the Constitution. This is a heavy responsibility for a leader who constantly ponders over justice and equal application or treatment under the law,” Hassan said.

Police have been unable to produce him in court, even after they were ordered to do so by the court and now Hassan is seeking the President’s intervention.

“He should intervene forthwith, establish the whereabouts of his citizen and pursue for the purpose of legal recourse those responsible for his arrest and eventual disappearance,” Hassan said.

Members of his family say Hemed was one of the people arrested during the raid on the mosque on February 2 and that his arrest was featured on videos that were taken during the chaos.

Police arrested 125 people during the raid, some have been released while others were charged in court.
