Tanariver Senator Mr. Abdi Bule had a firsthand taste of what many Somalis were complaining of following detention by police for half an hour.
He was driving to Eastleigh on Monday afternoon with is children and his bodyguard when police stopped him near Mlango Kubwa.
The Senator said that he was embarrassed by police who dismissed his National ID and another card showing he is a Senator as fake.
“The police officer at the roadblock near Mlango Kubwa said my documents are fake and detained me for more than 30 minutes,” Bule said.
He was speaking at Parliament buildings when he held a press conference to raise the matter.
He demanded apology from Interior and Co-ordination of National Government Cabinet Secretary Mr. Joseph Ole Lenku and Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo.
