Man Brutalized by GSU Officers in Turkana - (Watch Video)

Turkana County has been in the map lately, mostly following the discovery of oil. But that it appears is not the only news making headlines from that end.

Exclusive pictures obtained by NTV show of gruesome acts of brutality by police officers involved in a security operation, taking it out on a man suspected to be a cattle thief.

And as NTV's Sheila Sendeyo reports, this is just one out of many cases involving police brutality that go unreported, and especially in pastoralist areas, where cattle rustling incidents are ever on a high.

I agree this young man stole or whatever he did, but these grown up men beating him just demonstrates how low the Africans and mostly Kenyans respect the basic rights of a fellow human being. At these kind of scenarios I feel totally ashamed to have been born in Africa and an African! I rest my case.

Surely some times we surfer because we don't have enough civic education for us to know our right. Could we know what kind of training our police are given when in college so that we have grounds we can argue and defend our-self even when we are confronted by police who want to take advantage of the authority they are bestowed? HOw many more have surfferd beyond this? Who knows or can follow their case? Imagin of the Kenya wildlife and others hunting for the porchers. Whoever they meet on their way they beat them as if they are trained to do that even if they're saying they truth that they don't know what they are talking about. For some their testicles have been removed in the name of punishing them. Does the government really know what its people are surffering? That's if the law enforcers can do that then to whom do we run? Everyone for himself God for us all. Derbiga.
