Wapigwe risasi... Sen. Boni Khalwalwe pushes for criminal gangs shoot and kill directive
Senator Dr Boni Khalwale of Kakamega

Senator Dr Boni Khalwale of Kakamega claims he is in favour of the order to shoot anyone terrorizing city residents.

On Thursday, November 17, 2022, Khalwale stated that law enforcement personnel should be permitted to murder criminals instead of apprehending them.

He insisted that law enforcement should not "spend" time capturing the criminals because they were "terrorists."

"They should shoot them instead of wasting time arresting them because they are terrorists, and anyone watching this video would wonder how a doctor can say they should be shot on sight."

"It is because they are terrorists; they are terrorizing people, and they have come for that; they should get what they are asking for," Khalwale said.

The fiery senator additionally demanded Interior Cabinet Secretary (CS) Kithure Kindiki strengthen and enforce harsh instructions against the gangs terrorizing residents.

" We want this to be over in the next few days, so I want to implore Professor Kindiki to give General Service Unit (GSU) commanders and Rapid Deployment Unit (RDU) personnel short and straightforward instructions."

A day after the Cabinet approved the GSU and the RDU's deployment to Nairobi to address the city's increasing incidences of insecurity, Khalwale made his comments.

Following a meeting presided over by President William Ruto, Cabinet Secretaries (CSs) approved the stationing of the policemen as a reinforcement to the security agents patrolling the city in a despatch dated Tuesday, November 15.

The dispatch stated, in part, that the "Cabinet sanctioned rapid and decisive measures to deal with all individuals perpetrating crimes with the deployment of extra specialist police units selected from the GSU and RDU."

As a result, Nairobi County Police Command changes were also announced by Interior CS Kithure Kindiki, with Adamson Bungei taking over as the new county police chief.

Samson Cherargei, a senator for Nandi, was robbed along Valley Road before the announcement, making him a victim of Nairobi's growing crime rate.

On Tuesday, November 15, 2022, Cherargei revealed that he had been robbed a fortnight earlier and lamented the rising instances of insecurity in the capital in a tweet.

After being robbed while he was stopped in traffic, the Nandi senator vehemently claimed that Nairobi had become a crime metropolis and gangs' sanctuary.

"Nairobi is now a crime city and a haven for gangs," he tweeted. "A fortnight ago I lost the left-side mirror of my car while stuck in traffic along Valley Road, being removed forcefully by a thug."

Cherargei also demanded that the security sector be reorganized to address the growing instances of insecurity.

"The security sector needs to be reorganized promptly to solve the security lapse across the country."
