Chaos were witnessed today in Nandi county after a man was shot dead by the police for not wearing a face mask.

Several Kenyans including politicians have condemned the act, demanding justice for the for the man killed.

According to information shared to the media, a heated argument ensued when one resident was arrested for not having a facemask.

The man who was killed resolved to rescue the arrested man by trying to negotiate with the killer cop to release the man.

Some area politicians including the county Governor visited the scene of the incident and addressed the matter. However, in a video that circulated online, area residents while engaging the Women Rep demanded to hear from Jackson Mandago of the neighbouring Uasin Gishu county, area MP Alfred Keter or DP Ruto.

This was after they rejected their own Governor Hon. Stephen Sang, terming him as a liar.

Area residents were engaging the Women Rep in their local dialect saying," we want to hear from Hon Jackson Mandago or our MP Alfred Keter or even William Ruto since our Governor has been lying to us. They can address the issue better." County Woman MP was forced to call Hon. Mandago who did not pick the call.

This becomes the latest case of alleged police brutality and extra-judicial killings, with a number of protests witnessed in Nairobi in recent weeks over the issue.

There has been a reported surge in complaints of police misconduct since enforcement of the curfew began as part of corona virus pandemic restrictions.
