VIDEO: Kenyan woman in US accuses police of racial discrimination, taking her son to hospital by force.

Published

A Massachusetts based Kenyan woman recently went live on Facebook where she is seen arguing with a police officer accusing him of racial discrimination and not letting her speak to her son.

Gathoni Liz, who recorded the whole incident and transmitted it live on her FB page, complained bitterly about how she was being treated.

She is heard telling the police officer that all she wants to do is talk to her eight year old son, who apparently was about to “be taken to hospital by force.”

“Is she hitting anyone right now,” she inquires.

In the video, she can be heard lamenting that she is being discriminated upon because of the color of her and her son’s skin.

“This is all because of the color of my skin and that of my son. If we were White, this would not have happened,” she says.

However, the officer denies her accusations and later says: “You are under arrest for disturbing the peace,”

According to Liz, it all began when her son, who is in a whites only school, complained to her that he was being bullied.

Later on, when she inquires from the officer whether she is under arrest, the officer answers in the affirmative. Now Liz is appealing for funds to hire a lawyer to represent her in the case.

Published

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has told Americans abroad who still wish to return to the United States to do so “immediately,” saying commercial and government-chartered flights could soon cease amid the coronavirus outbreak.

“We don’t know how long commercial flights will … operate,” Mr Pompeo said Tuesday, adding it is not a sure thing that flights being chartered by the US government specifically for Americans to return home due to COVID-19 fears will be available in some countries.

The US top diplomat urged any Americans abroad who want to get back to US soil to contact the American embassy in the country where they currently are to begin making plans “immediately” to get a flight back to the States.

Kenyan who Returned from Abroad Detained at Nairobi Hotel over Sh45,000 Quarantine Bill

Published

on

A Kenyan-born student who flew in from abroad  was on Friday detained at a high-end hotel in Nairobi for “failing to pay a Sh45,000 bill.”

However, the student -Mayombe Odubah -claims she was forcefully transferred to Pride Inn hotel by uniformed policemen following a government directive that everyone arriving in the country be isolated for two weeks.

The 20-year old law student at Middlesex University in Slic-en-slac, Mauritius told Nairobi News she informed the police, and hotel management that she could not afford to pay the Sh9,000 hotel day bill.

She also wrote a letter to the Ministry of Health explaining her financial position, a document that is in possession of Nairobi News.

“Most passengers refused to go to the hotel but police forced and threatened us,” she explained.

“I spoke to the management and informed them I didnt have the money. A Mr. Amusala told me to spend the night because I wasn’t allowed to sleep at the lobby at Sh7500 for the night and allow my matter be handled the following day. He has since stopped picking my calls. I have since been transferred to JKUAT, which is cheaper, but the hotel has refused to release me. My parents cannot afford this cost. I am worried.”

President Uhuru Kenyatta recently announced all visitors arriving in the country will be placed if forced isolation at their cost, in a move aimed at curbing the spread of coronavirus pandemic.
