Atwoli to the defence of Wako and Ali

Can you imagine retiring to bed with the knowledge that police officers have gone on strike and there is no one to protect you?

Well, if plans by Cotu Secretary General Francis Atwoli come to pass, this nightmare might become reality.

This, according to Atwoli logic, is to punish those maligning the names of the police and Attorney General Amos Wako.

"A police officers’ strike called by Cotu is in the offing because Kenyans don’t recognise the hard work the officers do in keeping law and order," he said at the Tom Mboya Labour College in Kisumu yesterday.

Atwoli was unable to hide his bitterness with UN special investigator Philip Alston, who castigated the police force over extra-judicial killings.

"I want this mzungu (Alston) to come to Kenya and see the situation without police before completing the final report on his investigation," he added.

He caused laughter when he said he would mobilise pickpockets, Mungiki and chang’aa brewers to cause mayhem and disorder during the one-day strike.

He added: "When the bodyguards of those politicians who are making noise boycott work, we will see whether they will walk down Koinange Street at night."
