Boniface Mwangi Attacked
It was a bad day yesterday for activist Boniface MWANGI as he expressed his disappointment on his twitter page.
He said that he was at his barbershop place when KRA officers appeared with GSU officers.
The KRA officials wanted to get his business lincenses and that’s when the activist asked them to reveal their work identities for them to be allowed in.
Since the sent KRA officers had not carried any work identity card they called their supervisor who is a woman who as per the video was talking to Boniface Mwangi.
After confirming she was authorized by the government that is when the GSU officers chipped in to attack the activist who was by then recording them.
He took to his page and said:
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 this extortionists in your business? They need to be identified, named and shamed.
