A week ago I talked about love, what it really means to care. This week I want to look at the other side of love; when love and care isn’t ruling what is? Case study police brutality .
Multimedia University of Kenya students were angered after one of our students was involved in an accident taking her life in her prime teen .A first year who had spent counted days on campus. Holding a vigil was not enough. Onto the streets we went peacefully demonstrating . In the midst of the protest appeared police who maintained disorder this time. Before we knew bullets were hurled at us. Edwin Nyamweya was a victim having been shot on his left thigh and admitted in hospital for surgery. Police brutality has been a common occurrence during demonstration and its time they devised new ways of managing such crowds. In chapter four –The bill of rights-part 2 rights and fundamental freedom of the Kenyan constitution, every person has the right, peaceably and unarmed, to assemble, to demonstrate, to picket, and to present petitions to public authorities.
Therefore its high time that law enforcers recognize that this right exists and there is absolutely no need to open- up live ammunition on students. For any law enforcer who tries this cruel act they should first realize that life is not theirs to take. Have some love towards fellow human dear police office.
