A Kenyan man was mercilessly beaten in what can only be described as a despicable response by the Sussex Police, to a situation that needed both care and empathy.
The young man is known to have mental health issues, but the police who responded to the call, failed to listen, or entertain the mother’s concerns. He was severely beaten, and the mother denied the right to visit him for more than three weeks, ongoing.
Appeal To Kenya Community
The mother is now asking and appealing to the Kenyan community to assist her, so that she can be allowed to see her son and eventually have him back in her care.
The police have allegedly warned and threatened her of dire consequences if this video is shared, but she has proclaimed that she is ready to face any consequences to secure her son’s freedom.
Outright Police Brutality. No Response from Kenyan Ambassadors Office
This is a case of outright and blatant police brutality. We tried to contact the Kenyan Ambassadors office and got no response.
The embassy should intervene without delay to ensure that it’s citizens’ rights, both the mother and son are met without delay.
