Kilifi Governor Amason Kingi has castigated Malindi based police for shooting a class six boy in a bid to protect an Indian tycoon.

The governor stated that there was no point of shooting an innocent boy over a land dispute that could be addressed in a civilized manner without causing injuries.

“Land issue cannot be solved with a gun. I had earliest sat with a team of security led by the county commissioner and agreed with them that if there was a dispute or a court order, before implementing, it must be taken to the county to ensure smooth implementation without causing bloodshed.” Said Kingi

He wondered why the police resorted to the use of live bullets on a boy whose only mistake was coming from school. According to him, the police ought to have employed the use of teargas to disperse the crowd.

The melee unfolded when the police were allegedly helping an Indian Tycoon evict some people from a disputed land. The Asian man claimed ownership of the property before the residents confronted him demanding to know why he was doing a survey in a land that was not his.

It is then that they asked him to produce the title deed to verify ownership, which he could not produce, resulting in a commotion. Feeling overpowered, the police that accompanied him called for reinforcements from the Malindi Police.
