VIDEO: Police Officer Sends Message to CORD Protesters in ‘Rap Style’
A police officer has showcased his mastery of poetry skills in a video shared online, with a deep message surrounding the current political situation in the country.
In the video, the Administration Police officer expresses his message through a ‘spoken word’, advising the youth and political leaders against the use of force in ejecting commissioners of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).
“Mimi ni karao na sijakam kukupiga na tear gas (I am a police officer but I haven’t come to lob tear gas at you). I don’t support some police actions neither do I support violent mass actions,” says the unidentified officer.
The officer continues to correct his colleagues cautioning them against using too much force on demonstrators but at the same time, faults the youth for allowing politicians to misuse them through ‘non-issues’.
“Mayouth tunabebwa ufala na hawa maleaders. Mtaani tunawazindikisha hawa maboss kuwasaidia sijui ni kukula ama kukunywa vitoa machozi. Issue ya IEBC ni non-issue kwetu mavijanaa (We are being misused by these leaders. We escort them on the streets to be teargassed over IEBC that greatly doesn’t concern the youth),” he proceeds.
The video which was posted by Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko, elicited a massive response from the public with many commending the officer for the message and his talent.
