Shielding the rotten in service

By | April 18th 2012

By John Gerezani

It was an open and shut case and everyone had expected the Madame sonko to recommend instant dismissal from the service for the culprit. But alas....not only did the brother survive that but also got a promotion and transfer to a security position at a top neti in Western region.

It is not for nothing that the doctrine of precedence is highly persuasive in criminal jurisprudence and so in making her decision the sonko ought to have called for the dude’s previous record.

The dude, who is known in the department as Afande Mende, has previously featured here for his proclivities at Hell’s den where a junior smarter had apparently taken the rope upon realising that the dude had plied him with drinks the previous night and once he had chewed a blackout had proceeded to sodomise him.

gaining footing

Upon the news breaking out Afande Mende was transferred to the pristine coastal beaches where he quickly gained footing as the chair of the gays association in the Mtwapa sin belt. On this particular night, the dude had taken a couple of smarters for drinks but little did they know that it was Afande Mende’s modus operandi and at the end of it all one of them would wake up from a suspected spiked drink black-out to find self in the officer’s bed badly wasted.

Upon making the official complaint to madame, the smarter was advised to go to the cops as that was a purely criminal nature. Knowing the kind of shackles and negative publicity the attendant trial would raise, the victim smarter pushed for the matter to be sorted administratively but madame held her ground that the matter was in the purview of cops.

Check mate there but upon threats by the victim to commit suicide, Afande Mende was transferred to Western. It is public knowledge as to what he subsequently did in Kodiaga leading to near fatal consequences had Izzo not taken heed and gotten him out pap.

The biggest drama had, however, occurred in his crib at the Coast as he packed his mizigo. His retinue of gay lovers in Mtwapa had apparently known that the dude was going on transfer so they raided his digz and started inheritance and alimony battles with the most adored ones taking the lion’s share.

tactless antics

It is patently clear that this criminally inclined officer is well connected otherwise it’s hard to fathom how he could have lasted in the disciplined service with such brazen and tactless antics against his juniors.

I have raised this matter at the insistence of smarters who want immediate action taken as their prognosis of how the matter will end up should Afande Mende stay in the department is not inspiring.

It is only prudent that Izzo asks all victims to write statements, invoke the relevant sections of the Sexual Offences Act and let the boy go in public interest.

Talking of criminal inclinations, could top cop Iteere train his lenses on certain church ministries acting as fronts for the underworld?

The big sounding titles are for show and to hoodwink a gullible public. He should investigate how many pack illegal guns, how many could be deep into human and narco trafficking, money laundering, prostitution rings targeting the high end market as well as trade in high value whips with questionable source markets.

With cut-throat compe for gullible adherents moving a notch higher Iteere should not rule out contract killings being thrown into the mix.

In the same breath the law governing the offence of obtaining by false pretences should encompass what the new age televangelists menacingly do on telly. It is pure extortion to threaten dire consequences to those who cannot afford to plant mbegu.

Afadhali the Kamiti phone conmen of yore who at least had some tact. Matthew 10:8 says: "Freely you have received, freely give."

Meanwhile, I’m waiting for our paparrazi Stevens Muendo to out that Pastor mtoto being dated by a married former MP.

I wanna hook "her" up to our Afande Mende.
