Activist Boniface Mwangi has warned Kenyans against attacking police officers.
He was reacting to a video making rounds on social media of an unknown man fighting two police officers.
The activist narrated how he almost became a cripple after officers ganged up on him following an altercation with an officer.
Mwangi says he fought an officer in self-defense, but he was dragged into a basement at city hall and beaten.
According to Mwangi the officers chained his hands and beat him. He was rescued by a relative and Ziwani MCA Millicent Mugadi.
“I did this once in self- defense pale (at) City Hall, they ganged up, dragged me to the basement, chained my hands on a box, and they beat me till my saliva dried. A relative and Ziwani MCA Millicent came to my rescue, but if they hadn’t, I would have been crippled or murdered. Don’t do it,” he posted on Twitter.
