MP Salah Yakub; was he really beaten by police?

Yakub disclosed that he had gone to Nyayo house in search of a passport when the officers—a policewoman in particular—tried to extort him. He further stated that he was left with injuries to his arm and leg as a result of the assault.

He added that people seeking assistance at the multi-story building in Nairobi’s Central Business District (CBD) had been beaten by the police officers stationed there on multiple occasions.

“CS Kithure Kindiki and the Independent Policing Oversight Authority, (it is) very unfortunate that police officers at Nyayo house are mishandling the general public and today I fell a victim, roughed up and seriously assaulted. I sustained injuries to my left foot and arm,” he stated.

MP Salah also stated that six MPs, including himself, had already been taken advantage of by police officers who, according to him, frequently extorted citizens.

“There is a policewoman heading the security there. She collects money from Kenya Somalis who applied for passports in order for them to access the premises and she verily mishandled most NEP MPs (MPs from the North Eastern Province of Kenya). I am the sixth MP to be humiliated by that contingent. Waziri (CS) take action!” he pleaded.

The attack occurs months after the Interior CS Kithure Kindiki began cleaning up the consistently corrupted tower with the goal of accelerating passport production.

The CS conducted unplanned visits to the National Immigration Department’s Nyayo House headquarters in August and September of this year in order to evaluate the situation and speak with Kenyans who were in need of assistance.

In the ensuing investigations, a number of people who were alleged to have obstructed the provision of services were taken into custody.

The CS visited the immigration department after receiving complaints from some Kenyans regarding recent delays in the passport application process.
