Charity Ngilu Ordered To Report To CID By Police Commissioner

As I was posting this, I had not yet established the fate of Health Minister Charity Ngilu who was earlier today ordered to report to CID headquarters by the police commissioner in connection to the dramatic commando-like rescue she executed at the Central Police station to free civil society activist Ann Njogu from police custody.

The interesting thing about the police is that yesterday they announced that they were looking for Mrs Ngilu and knew very well where to look but no policemen arrived at her Afya House health ministry office.

Probably what rubbed salt on the fresh wounds of the police was her statement to the press earlier today that she had no regrets over what she had done and would gladly do it all over again. Ngilu went on to complain over the fact that Ann Njogu had been a victim of police brutality and she had seen the policemen "drag her along the floor."

The order by Maj Gen Ali is a clear move to intimidate the minister and show her who is in charge.

Good people let us not forget where this sorry saga started from. The rights activists were protesting the plan by MPs to give themselves an unprecedented golden hand shake at the end of their term this year at a time when most Kenyans are struggling to put food on the table.

One wonders why the police cannot spend their time doing something more productive like arresting carjackers instead of harassing innocent peaceful demonstrators. I cannot help but notice the loud silence from parliament about the arrests and police harassment. Even ODM guys are too busy (you know doing what).

By the time I was writing this, I had not heard of anybody issuing a statement condemning the uncalled-for police brutality.

The police are right. Two wrongs dont make a right. Hon. Ngilu broke the law by doing what she did. So what precedent is she setting? Next time we will all drive to prisons and police cells to rescue (read hijack) our loved ones?
