Mr Makswell moved a number of Kenyans on social media with the post he made on Facebook describing how he was forced to let go of his daughter after being held at gunpoint by four police officers.

In the post, Mr Makswell narrates how he was arrested for allegedly kidnapping his own daughter. According to him, a lady identified as Annette Kimuomi gave the information to the police that led to his arrest.

“None of the officers told me why I was being arrested, and when we arrived at the station the first person I saw was Annette Kimuomi! Then one of the officers told me that Annette Kimuomi had reported that I had kid napped Tamara and that I have since stopped her from taking medication. Annette Kimuomi had told the officers that Rena died of HIV and that Tamar was born positive, so the officer told me that these people have money and they can do anything so if I know what is good for me then I should give them the child,” read part of the post.

“Let’s shoot him”, said one officer as the other four cocked their guns and pointed them at me. This is how I almost got shot yesterday night at Spring Valley police station in Saika. My only crime was taking away my daughter who is currently nine months and taking care of her after my wife died in October 2018,” he added.

Mr Makswell says his wife died in October 2018 due to liver and post birth problems.

Here is Makswell’s full narration of what took place.
