It would seem that police methods in Kenya have not changed. Simon Wambugu (sketched above) a suspect in the gruesome assassination of former Kabete MP George Muchai told the court this morning (Friday) that he had been tortured by police for a confession so much so that he has sustained serious injuries in his private parts. he requested that the court order that he be treated at his own expense by a private doctor. This request was denied and the court ordered that he be taken to Kenyatta National Hospital and a report on his condition be presented before the court.
In my view we really need that forensic lab pronto because police are currently caught between a rock and a hard place. There is pressure to fight crime even as we need to avoid human rights abuses. One would cringe just to imagine what the said suspect must be feeling if he is innocent?
