Director of Public Prosecution Noordin Haji has slammed the police who have been arresting Matatu touts popularly known as Kamagera and labeling them as criminals.
According to Haji touting is not a crime and therefore the police should not arrest any bus stage attendant.
‘’Kwani kusema Kayole! Kayole! Kiambu !Kiambu! ni mbaya? Hawa watu wanajitafutia lakini wakinyanganya abiria ndio mbaya [Is saying Kayole kayole Kimabu Kiambu unlawful? These people are just earning a living that act is not against the law, If at all they rob the passengers then they can be arrested but if not, let them be’’ He said
Haji on the other hand pledged to write to inspector general of police Joseph Boinet to move with speed and investigate crime fighter Hessy, a police officer believed to be posting pictures of crime suspects on social media and later on killing them.
‘’I am writing to Inspector general to immediately launch investigations over this Hessy issue, there is no law which supports extrajudicial killings.’’ Haji stated.
He was speaking in Kayole during a meeting with local leaders,police and pressure groups.
