Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka has said that individual police officers who used excessive force on Kenyans protesting will be prosecuted.

The former Vice President noted that if Kenya is truly a democratic country then the officers who used excessive force should not go unpunished.

Individual policemen and women who use force should be held liable individually because we are following the constitution,” Kalonzo said.

“If we are in a country that believes in the rule of law then these officers should face the law. We are following the constitution to the latter unless it is wrong but I don’t think so,” he added.
