"The two were preparing the exhauster to empty the septic tank when the county askaris arrived," she said. Before the men could start working work, she continued, the askaris began to kick and slap her and the workers. "I pleaded with them but my pleas fell on deaf ears. They arrested me, the two men and a cousin who was visiting," Kibiru said. The askaris accused them of polluting the environment as they hauled her into a waiting van before driving to the Central Police Station where they were all booked. "As they pushed me into the county van, a metal bar hit my stomach,” Kibiru said. While at the Central Police Station, she started experiencing lower abdominal pains radiating to her back, and started bleeding. A medical report from Al Gadhir Medical Clinic dated February 22 and seen by The Standard indicates that she suffered an incomplete miscarriage.
