In an interview, the woman, only identified as Christine, narrated that she wanted to request the CS to transfer police officers from Nyaribari area.
Christine argued that there had been an increase in theft and attack cases in the area and that the police officers were not proactive when residents reported the matter.
“We have raised the issue with the County Commander and the County Commissioner on a number of occasions and asked them to transfer some police officers, but it is yet to happen,” she stated.
Christine said she believed that some of the police officers in the area were working with law breakers and covering up felonies, referencing a case where two headteachers were burnt beyond recognition inside their houses.
“I was so shocked when I was beaten up by the security detail. I did not want to borrow money from the CS, but wanted to pass across the important information,” she continued.
Christine had managed to snake through Matiang’i’s security detail and made her way towards his helicopter in a bid to get an audience with him.
Kisii County Commander, Francis Kooli, with the assistance of his junior officers, however, moved in to block the woman from getting to the helicopter. She was adamant but was outnumbered by the officers who frog-matched her to a nearby police vehicle.
“The police commander most likely knew what I was going to tell the CS because I had reported the issues to him a number of times. That could have been the reason why he beat me up.”
Further, Christine disclosed that CS Matiang’i knew her, adding that they once talked on phone.
“If indeed I wanted money from him, I would have just sent him a message because we know each other, but that was not what I wanted.”
Christine, however, urged the CS to help her get a job opportunity, revealing that she was a university graduate, having studied Sign Language.
The graduate and mother of two, noted that she had been out of job for quite sometime.
