This is what the Kenyan police do in the name of internal security. Thank God for liberalised media…
KENYA CORRUPTION SCANDAL: Security video footage of Kenyan police raiding the offices of a newspaper. CCTV video via the East African Standard.
Blogger mentalacrobatics explains, “This rapid response unit is code-named the Kanga Squad, detectives from Nairobi provincial CID headquarters and officers from the General Service Unit. They are wearing bright orange reflective vests with ‘QRU’ for Quick Rescue Unit/Quick Response Unit which indicates their day job of fight hardcore criminals like carjackers, bank robbers and murder hit squads.
These pictures are very disturbing. In some of them they have an employee spread eagled on the floor with a gun pressed against his/her head and a boot in his/her face. Remember these are NOT criminals being man handled like this. These are Kenyan men and women who went to work only to be pistol whipped and roughed up by an elite police squad.”
