KISUMU residents are planning a fierce demonstrations to protest against a leakage that a cock-shot cop Kondele OCS Johnstone Wanyamab has been unceremoniously transferred to western Kenya as insecurity escalates at the lake side City,.
The irate locals have vowed that they would continue with the demonstration until the government considers revoking the abrupt transfer of Wanyama .
The step seemingly orchestrated by dark forces at Vigilance house has evidently surprised many including former Prime Minister Raila Odinga who has hailed Wanyama for the good work at the region.
Yesterday a meeting that was held by Boda boda operators and businessmen in town resolved that the demonstration is set to take place in the course of the week should the office of Inspector General of police and that of National Police Service Commission Johnston Kavuludi fail to take immediate reversal action.
Wanyama a man comparably at one time Kenyan most dreaded cop Patrick Shaw (Romeo nine) rose to frame given his combative response while dealing with equally dreaded criminals.
Independent investigations have revealed that already criminals in Kisumu are on celebratory mode saying that the exit of Wanyama is a signal of business as usuall to them.
The matter is currently at the table of ranking government officials and relevantly being monitored by the deputy Inspector of the police Grace Kaindi and a host of politicians including Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko, a man so close to the Kenyan President Uhuru Kerntyatta.
Back in Kisumu, business fraternity led by one prominent business mogul Edward Onyango aka Bob lamented the rumoured transfer of Wanyama saying he was the only cop with the required capacity to deal to the boot with runaway insecurity in the region.
However security experts are reading mischief in Wanyama’s transfer questioning the move at a time they expected him to lead security operations in the region.
Just hours before the transfer Kisumu residents remained a happy lot after the dreaded cop recovered a dangerous weapon and managed to arrest over 100 suspected criminals at Obunga Estate in Kisumu.
The home made gun resembling AK-47 was recovered during a day time serious operation that also saw over 1,000 liters of illicit brew and more than 100n rolls of bhang netted.
Tension is high in Kisumu as locals are planning to petition President Uhuru Kenyatta to revoke the transfer of the ‘friendly but fierce cop’ Wanyama and they have vowed to proceed on the street should the sad news turn to be true./
