Kiambu cop assaults man over flour donation
A Police Constable based at Muna Police Post in Kiambu reportedly assaulted a man and shot in the air on Tuesday after his request for additional donation was denied was declined.
In a report compiled by Nation.Africa, members of the Kenya DiasporaMedia-USA organization had gone to the police post to deliver 60 bales of flour for safekeeping ahead of a distribution exercise slated for later in the week.
The officials then decided to give some packets of flour to the police officers present at the station.
Each officer received two bales of flour, but an unnamed officer demanded more, much to the surprise of the organization’s members.
Upon being informed that he could not be given more flour, the officer got irritated, shot four times in the air before attacking the driver of the vehicle that brought the donations.
The driver sustained serious injuries on his head and also complained of chest pains inflicted by the officer’s blows.
Officers from the Limuru Police Station rushed to the scene and disarmed their rogue colleague before marching him to Kikuyu General Hospital to undergo medical tests.
The officer’s gun, an AK47, was found to be loaded with 16 bullets.
Detectives have taken up the matter and are handling it as an assault case.
