The police service is once again on the spot for brutality and use of excessive force following yesterday’s scuffle at City Hall that left various Members of the County Assembly injured.

Four policemen were caught on camera assaulting a defenceless, Patricia Mutheu, the MCA for Mlango Kubwa ward. From the videos that have since gone viral on social media, the one of the officers can be seen kicking the lady and clobbering her with a baton.

Mutheu was caught up in the fracas that ensued in the Nairobi County Assembly after police raided the premises to disperse MCAs who were trying to serve Speaker Beatrice Elachi with a notice of impeachment.

Leaders and members of the public have taken to Twitter under the hashtag #PoliceBrutalityKE and #JusticeForPatriciaMutheu to condemn the incident and have called for action from the police inspector General Mutyambai.
