Allan Omondi, the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) student who was brutalised by the police has revealed that his family is now living in fear following that ordeal.
According to Omondi who survived death threats from the officers, some people within the police service are inquiring if the matter will land in court.
The fourth-year Food Science and Technology student noted that he was warned that his fate might be a lesson to other rioting students as he was being taken to Juja police station.
“They said: "Wewe hata hatutakufikisha station. Tutakumalizia hapa hapa’ (We won’t even reach the station with you. We will be done with you here), adding that I would serve as an example to the rest of the students,” Mr Omondi said as quoted by Nation.
The video which surfaced online showing Mr Omondi's being brutally beaten by police officers saw several leaders call for the responsible authorities to take action.
The Police IG Hillary Mutyambai has since ordered for investigation to begin over the incident.
Juja OCPD Dorothy Migarusha who confirmed that the student was doing well condemned the brutality.
“He has no injuries but anybody who has viewed the video knows that is an impracticality. There is a procedure which those arrested while injured undergo but huyo kijana ako sawa (that boy is fine)” she said as quoted by Citizen Digital.
