Viral Video- Boniface Mwangi Recalls His Terrible Ordeal With Police Officers Yesterday

Mwangi says that he was at his barbershop at the time when young men walked in, with a GSU officer and arrested the receptionist. He explains that asked them to identify themselves through an ID. Things went raw when they realized that he was recording and tried to snatch the phone.

“Because l recorded them, the GSU officers wanted to take my phone, I refused and in my attempt to run away, I fell. They caught up with me and beat me up. Even after the beating, l didn’t hand over my phone,” Mwangi narrated.

Mwangi says that he sustained some injuries on his leg during the process. He has continued to call out the officers over the brutality on individuals and the abuse of their rights. Despite him calling on the abusers to be arraigned, no action have been taken yet.

This narrative of Boniface Mwangi brings up alot of questions with no answers. Does what happened to him happens to small business owners daily?? Does it mean wines and spirits owners are harassed to a point that they have to budget money for bribes??

This was his statement:

“Our country is broken. I was at my barbershop when some young men walked in, with a General Service officer and arrested the receptionist. We asked them to identify themselves, they said they were from Kenya Revenue Authority but they didn’t have any identification cards. We requested them to call someone who had a job ID.

The GSU officer left and came back with the lady in the video. It turns out that the young men without IDs and the GSU officers are under the command of Nairobi Metropolitan Services employee. It’s Friday and they’re picking people from shops, beating them and taking them to a lorry for not having “branding licenses”.

It’s a long weekend because Monday is a holiday they know people will bribe them to get released. Because l recorded them, the GSU officers wanted to take my phone, I refused and in my attempt to run away, I slid and fell. They caught up with me, and beat me up. Even after the beating l refused to hand over my phone. Because we raised our voices, not a single person was arrested in the entire Pension Towers building.

l was slightly injured. The harassment and the brutalization of innocent citizens going about their business was captured on the building’s CCTV. Have your encountered these extortionists in your business? They need to be identified, named and shamed.”
