Following the assassination of Kabete MP George Muchai on Saturday morning, questions are being asked about VIP protection in Kenya.

The treatment police assigned to protect MPs and other VIPs receive is just inhumane. Despite sleeping very late, their day normally start at around 4AM, and some are treated as errand boys. They are sent everywhere including to buy things their boss would find shameful to buy themselves eg, viagra and condoms.

They are also expected to accompany their boss everywhere, from weddings, funerals, the toilet and even to the witchdoctors.

Here’s a tweet made by Boniface Mwangi, which I guarantee is the saddest thing you’ll read today.
