Wednesday, June 3, 2020 – As the world continues to condemn the murder of George Floyd in the hands of racist white cops in the US, celebrated Kenyan rapper, Nyamari Ongegu alias Nyashinski, has taken to social media to highlight police brutality in the country.
The veteran rapper revealed that he has not only been harassed by Kenyan cops but he has also lost friends to police bullets.
This comes after IPOA revealed that police officers have killed 15 people since President Uhuru announce the dawn to dusk curfew to curb the spread of COVID-19.
Read his post below.
“Police brutality and murders have become so bad and common here in Kenya. It pains me deeply.”
“I’ve been harassed by cops, my friends have been harassed and I’ve even lost friends to police bullets and my story is not unique.
“Now, they are using this corona curfew as an excuse to brutally beat us and even shoot us.”
“You’re killing your own and thinking you’re doing a great job or thinking you are big and strong.”
“When will enough be enough? How many “justice” hashtags do we need to be heard?
“It’s so sad and especially us Kenyans relate with George Floyd in so many ways,”
“All across the world, even in places where we are the majority (like here), we are still terrorized, raped, murdered, wrongly accused, imprisoned, suspected of being violent, abused, and treated like we are less than others because of the colour of our skin.
“From the U.S to Arab countries (where some of us go to work) to Europe, even to our neighbourhoods! You name it. Black people experience the most envy and hatred at the same time.
“Always remember, a racist is more afraid of you than you are of them and a coward is only courageous with a gang or a gun,” he concluded, calling for an end to racism and police brutality.
