Police cautioned against harassing ‘Mnazi’ vendors in Mombasa

18 October 2016, 18:22 Gabriel Ngalla

Mombasa - Police in Mombasa have been criticized for harassing ‘Mnazi’ vendors in the County.

Kaloleni legislature in Kilifi County Gunga Mwinga Chea said that the vendors have been complaining for harassments from Mombasa County police officers despite the fact that Mnazi is legal liquor.

Addressing Mnazi vendors outside the Mombasa law courts buildings on Monday afternoon where the over 3,000 toddy liquor vendors converging to attend the hearing of the court case, Gunga accused the security agents for harassing locals who are just struggling to earn a living.

“Our Police officers are just used to terrorizing innocent people without any apparent reason, who told them that palm wine vendors are in illegal business?” posed the Legislature.

Addressing the same vendors, Nyali Member of Parliament who is also Mombasa gubernatorial 2017 aspirants Hezron Awitti Bollo asked Mombasa County Commissioner Evans Achoki and the Coast regional Coordinator Nelson Marwa to weigh into to the issue and solve it amicably.

“These are our sisters and mothers only trying to make ends meet, why should the police victimize them?” charged Awitti.

He also blamed the Mombasa County Askaris for indulging in issues which do not concern them and added that they should immediately stop misbehaving.

“This shows how the Police officers and Mombasa County askaris  do not have any clear assignments to do but only harvesting money from the poor Palm wine vendors, we will not allow that” said Awitti
