The Kisauni Insecurity situation is getting more complicated after peace and security group scoffed at parents for hiding the truth about their children negative behavioral change.

The Kenya Community Support Centre, a Coast based peace and security nongovernmental organization disclosed that most parents in Kisauni would rather stay mum than reveal their children’s unconfined behaviors to the security agents so that they can be rectified.

KECOSCE’s Executive Director Phyllis Muema said that most children would depict scoundrel behaviors in front of their parents but none of the parents would take bold steps in ensuring the children are punished, counseled and guided to the right path.

She said that such dreadful behaviors have breed criminals who execute their evil deeds in broad daylight.

Muema said that parents have ignored such trend that has led to killings of innocent people in the area.

“Most parents do not even care whether their children are at school during the day, some of the secondary school students from Kisauni hide at Nyali bridge attacking locals,” she said.

Muema reiterated the need of an urgent security dialogue between security agents, Locals, rights defenders and leaders so as to quell the disturbing situation.

She called on parents to reveal the truth to police about their children so that they are nabbed and rehabilitated instead of being executed.

“The state of affairs has become more complicated, gangs are on a retaliatory mission, this has escalated into a bloodletting worrying situation in the area,” she said.

Muema’s sentiments come barely a week after the killings of four people at Mtopanga area in Kisauni.

Samuel Odemba Odhiambo was a fourth year law student at the University of Nairobi and James Akunava a form four student who was about to sit his KCSE examination this year together with two others were executed in cold blood.

UoN students led by MUHURI and Haki yetu human rights organizations protested the killings last Friday urging Mombasa police Commandant Johnston Ipara to take stern actions against the killers.
