After journalists, bloggers and local leaders raised their voice against a Facebook post today in which a senior police officer from Garissa County posted pictures of the boys in blue flogging suspects in an unoccupied piece of land in the town, Inspector General of police Joseph Boinnet has promised investigations into the matter.
I’ve ordered urgent investigations into the Garissa flogging incident. Anyone found culpable will face disciplinary as well as legal action.
