Don’t get criminals out of police custody, MP cautions politicians

18 July 2016, 15:00 Gabriel Ngallah

Mombasa - The increase of crime related cases within Mombasa County has been squarely attributed to the County politicians who according to police have been aiding suspects out of police custody.

Recently, the County administration lambasted politicians who bond youths suspected to be operating criminal gangs around Kisauni, Likoni, Mvita and some parts of Changamwe sub-County.

While addressing a youth forum at his constituency on Sunday, Mvita member of Parliament Abdulswamad Shariff Nassir cautioned fellow politicians that they should immediately desist from doing so since they are contributing to insecurity within Mombasa County.

Abdulswamad said that by doing so, the politicians are not helping the security agents in the fight against crime and insecurity but instead build up the insecurity problem.

“My colleagues, by aiding criminals out of police custody or bonding them out of court, you are actually fueling insecurity not helping police to combat crime in the County,” he added.

The Mvita legislator said that he will not help parents whose children are well known criminals within the County and specifically within his Mvita constituency.

“It is pathetic; I know most of the politicians are doing so to woo voters to re-elect them but that is not the way to go. You cannot let 10 voters to be executed by one criminal who does not participate in any democratic process in the country,” he said.

The Mvita MP appealed to parents within his Constituency to take full responsibility of their families and ensure that they are close to their children.

Mombasa County Commissioner Maalim Mohammed has already warned parents protecting their children implicated in criminal activities that they will be treated as criminals too and face full force of the law.
