Monday, November 26, 2018- The Principal Prosecution Counsel in the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Duncan Ondimu, has castigated a Tuk Tuk driver caught on camera beating two traffic police officers.

The viral video has drawn out mixed reactions among Kenyans with some defending the driver claiming the traffic officers are notorious with asking for bribes.

The officers were also seen hurling stones at the fleeing driver.

However, according to Ondimu, the Tuk Tuk driver crossed the red line and should be apprehended for assaulting security officers.

Taking to twitter, the prosecutor wrote:

“A Police Officer carries the Government symbol, Coat of Arms. To assault and beat a police officer is such a terrible criminal act that must be dealt with firmly. I hope the Tuk Tuk fellow is apprehended!

He added: “We all have complaints about police malpractices that's why we have set up institutions to deal with the issues.

“Buy engaging in affray or attacking a police officer, assaulting ain't the way forward. Framers of the Constitution did not envisage such conduct,”

The incident is reported to have happened in Nakuru.
