Nassir wants Mombasa shooting thoroughly pursued


Mvita Member of Parliament Abdulswamad Sharif Nassir has raised concerns in the sluggish manner police have handled the recent shooting in Kaloleni area within Mombasa Island where one person was killed and two others seriously injured.

Nassir accused the police for mishandling the incident and openly showing their recklessness in taming insecurity in Mombasa.

According to the Legislature, one week later after the killing of young boy Amour Ahmed Salim, 24, and injuring of his two brothers Sadat Salim Abdallah, 42 and a 35 year old Fahad Salim Abdallah, police are yet to launch any investigations over the shooting.

Nassir who early this week raised the issue before the floor of the house expressed his dissatisfaction on how security agencies have mishandled the insecurity incident.

“Why are we being treated as second class citizens in our own country?” Mr. Nassir told the National Assembly.

He said the shooting happened at a small M-Pesa shop and nothing was stolen.

“Police have not made any efforts to reach out to the family and try interrogate on the matter, neither did they visit the two injured brothers who are nursing serious gunshot wounds at a private health facility in Mombasa,” noted Mr. Nassir.

Nassir appealed to security agencies to conduct thorough investigations on the incident.

According to eyewitnesses, two men on a motorcycle approached the M-Pesa shop at Kaloleni area along Memon road, the one withdrew a gun and instantly killed Amour who was standing at the door and also shot at his two brothers Sadat and Fahad and they vanished without stealing anything.

Nassir now wants an investigation report on the matter be brought to the National Assembly and as well the government to offset the medical bills for the victims.

National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi has ordered Parliamentary security and administration Committee Chairperson Paul Koinange to furnish the house with a report on the Kaloleni shooting incident in two weeks time.
