On Monday, uniformed police officers were caught on camera breaking into a city bar that was already closed business in compliance with the Kenyan government’s curfew regulations.
Moses Mwangi, the owner of the entertainment establishment identified as Mossy Tavern Bar and Restaurant in Soweto, Kayole, has disclosed that the six policemen forced their in way by breaking the doors and windows of his bar and stole money and crates of alcoholic drinks.
According to the bar owner, the officers stole Ksh. 122,00 from his cashbox.
“We had already closed by 9 pm Sunday to comply with the government’s regulations on operating hours for bar and restaurants when the uniformed police officers broke into my bar and carted away crates of alcohol and money stored in a safe box,” said Mwangi.
In the video, the officers who were fully attired in police uniform first demolish the joint’s metallic door by the use of metal rods and then proceed to the counter for drinks.
One of the police officers accesses the bar’s grill on the counter and removes the drinks by passing them over to his colleagues.
Moses Mwangi, says he complies with the ongoing government requirements and wondered why the policemen who are obligated to protect citizens have become a security threat in society.
“I am a hardworking businessman who respects the law. I have the documents the government gave me to run my business and now they are hurting me. What does the government want me to do?” the proprietor posed.
