Teenage-duo who were filmed dancing a reggae tune, Too Experienced by Barrington Levy while one having what appeared to be a gun were put on notice by killer cop group Hessy Wa Dandora.
Turns out it was a toy gun as the one who had the ‘gun’ on his hip presented himself to Buruburu Police Station saying he was a dancer.
In March 2019, the Directorate of Criminal Investigations Boss George Kinoti stated firmly that there will be no more killings done by faceless police group Hessy Wa Kayole and Hessy wa Dandora.
“I’ve handled complaints about our colleagues taking law into their own hands and killing our fellow citizens. It’s true criminals are here in Kayole and other slum areas. As we seek to enforce the law, we must observe the rights of our people. We won’t be officers forever. Our families live in the very society which we harass. I can assure you that no officer under my command will be covered when he or she has killed an innocent citizen. I won’t cover you. If I do, then let me be cursed” the DCI boss said at Kayole Social Hall.
DCI Kinoti said he “does not know who these hessys are”, promising to investigate their work.
The case of this particular teenage boy is sad, growing up in Eastlands Nairobi, one is judged by their looks, which is wrong.
George Kinoti must come out and end this Hessy Culture because the violence only breeds violence and might one day lead to a bloodbath which doesn’t help anyone.
Excerpts from March 2019
“I have listened and seen people cry here until my tears started to drip. I can equally be emotional,” said Mr Kinoti at the Kayole Social Hall, where he and the Director of Public Prosecutions, Noordin Haji, opened engagements with locals over extrajudicial killings in the estate.
At one point, Mr Kinoti could be seen head up, eyes shut, probably as tears stung his eyes, as a young woman with a baby clutched on her waist, broke down narrating how she had had two husbands gunned down by the notorious ‘Hessy wa Kayole’ within two years.Nairobi News Report
“When we call it extrajudicial killing, it means these are killings sanctioned by the government. But there is no order like that from the government.”Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji, Kayole Social Hall 2019
“But where are all those who have been victims of criminality. No single person has stood here to say that my child, husband or wife has been a victim of these lethal criminal gangs. Who speaks for them? Why are we only (saying) about the Hessys? We need to be balanced.”
