A PHOTO OF A POLICE VAN carrying a hill of mattresses has elicited mixed reactions from Kenyans especially those who have once been held behind bars.
On Saturday December 19th, Mr. Boniface Mwangi posted a police van photo and on top of the van were mattresses on transit. He reckoned that he has been arrested more than once but he has never seen any mattress in all the cells he has visited.
He confirmed that if all Nairobi cells had no mattresses what about those cells in the rural areas where law sounds like a Latin word.
“I was arrested for the first time at age 11 and my latest arrest was in July 2020. 26 years of getting arrested and the only place you will get a mattress if you’re lucky is remand and prison. I hear some police stations have mattresses but l am yet to sleep in one that has them,” he tweeted.
Activist Mwangi was arrested at 11 years of age after he had ran away from home, before he was charged with vagrancy, found guilty and got committed into Approved School at that early age of 11.
