Police hit squads kidnap and kill people, claims Mwangi

Nairobi - Activist Boniface Mwangi has claimed that there are hit squads that kidnap and kill people in the Kenya Police Service.
In reference to the incident where a lawyer and his client who had sued an Administration Police officer for attempted murder went missing since last week Thursday, Mwangi said police know their whereabouts.
“Kenya police has his hit squads that kidnap and kill people. The government has admitted so in the past, ask them where #FindLawyerWillie is. Kenya has a rogue a police force that carries out murders on behalf of state and contract kills. The so called police reforms are a Joke!
“Police in Kenya kill more people than gangsters yearly. Murders for hire are done by police hit squads. Kenya is truly a bandit nation,” said Mwangi as he narrated how the past regimes gave Kenya police a license to kidnap, torture and kill their perceived enemies and that license is still in use today.
“Jomo political rivals were killed by police, Moi enemies tortured and killed by police, Kibaki Mungiki friends and ICC witnesses killed by police,” claimed Mwangi.
According to Mwangi, true police reforms will only happen if outsiders are hired to do the job because the Kavuludi led National Police Service Commission is corrupt and afraid of cleaning up the force.
“For true police reforms to happen, hire outsiders, Kenya has hired foreign judges in the past, hire expert foreigners to clean up our police,” Mwangi said.
Last month, CORD leader Raila Odinga also pointed an accusing finger to the police following the brutal murder of businessman Jacob Juma.
Raila claimed that a police hit squad was responsible for the murder of the late businessman and called for an inquest to be done by credible private investigators and not police officers.
