Police assault man over wee allegations

A 39-year-old man is in agony in hospital after he was allegedly assaulted by the head of the CID police in Mwanza for allegedly urinating within the vicinity of the district police station.

People pee on trees and anywhere

Edwin Mkutumula had gone to Mwanza police station to see a relation who was arrested but just before he met the suspect relation, he went around his vehicle to wee.

He was spotted by the head of the CID at the station who arrested him and assaulted him heavily that he is now admitted to hospital because of the injuries he sustained during the assault.

Kaunda said worse still, the police denied him a police report to go to hospital to seek medical attention.

The matter comes at a time of increased police brutality in the country under Inspector General of Police Rodney Jose, just days after health workers in Kasungu protested against the assault of the Kasungu district nursing officer by the police.

This also comes amid reports that the police from Area 30 and Dowa were intimidating and bullying a 14 year old girl and her mother to withdraw the teenage’s claim that she was raped in police custody by a police officer.

Mwanza police officer-in-charge Patricia Mkutumula feigned ignorance on the matter when asked.

Yes analakwa kukodza malo olakwika but the issue here is for harassment. Should police act in such way they find such people. The answer is NOOOO. I have seen a lot of places in town where people urinate coz one of the reason is they can not afford to use a pay out toilet because they don’t have money. The police should not take the law into their own hands because of their job, let us civic educate the people if this trend is to stop. And to comment on this particular issue I have never seen police stations having… Read more »
