MP distances himself from terror links

25 July 2016, 09:37 Gabriel Ngallah

Mombasa - Kisauni Member of Parliament, Rashid Juma Bedzimba has denied reports that he could be fully aware of terror activities of youths in his Constituency.

This follows the killing of his step-brother Salim Hanjary Bedzimba together with his accomplice Swaleh Ahmed Abdallah, famously known as Rajab at Junda area in Kisauni last week.

The MP said that the killing of his close relative was a total human rights violation since police did not have any proof that Hanjary was indeed a member of Al-shabaab.

Bedzimba condemned police for extra judicial killings in Mombasa and other parts of the Coast region and asked them to stop such human rights violation.

"We know and we have evidence that police have been killing our innocent youths and putting weapons on their bodies claiming that our innocent youths are terrorists," said an enraged Bedzimba.

The Kisauni legislator further blamed the police for not combating crime within his constituency but instead terrorising and executing innocent young lives.

"Salim Hanjary was an employee of the Mombasa County government since 2013. He is well known by police and locals; why not arrest and charge him before a court? " posed Bedzimba.

The legislator said that many youths in Kisauni and the entire Mombasa County have been executed in a similar manner and urged police to change tactic in solving such security threats. He further condemned the police for laxity and failure to curb insecurity in Mombasa.
