• Why do you have to deny what we saw with our eyes .Do you have to lie?
Kenyans on social media are not buying a statement by the National Police service saying that a cop's phone was not snatched.
After the video went viral on social media platforms, the Police Service said it had been manipulated for malicious intentions. They asked members of the public to ignore it.
Now, Kenyans online have responded to the statement, accusing the authorities of denying something that is evident.
Many are convinced that the police officer's phone was stolen and what the National Police Service is doing is what is famously known as 'Kuruka story.'
Here are some of their reactions;
@Robarto- "Why do you have to deny what we saw with our eyes .Do you have to lie?"
@ Samwel Mwirigi - "You don't want to admit you have done nothing to the so called hot spots to stop these activities."
@Gitau - "Wewe mki ibiwa mnakubali wacheni mambo."
@ Johny Kiash - "Serikali ililala mteja alafu waseme tuignore."
@ Don - "We can't ignore when you lie to us. Accept it happened and move on."
@ Kimutai - "The first stage of grief is denial."
@ Leachy - "This the kind of thing that makes this country go backward! Instead of dealing with the situation and make this country safer.... U just sweeping the dirt under the carpet! It's a shame!"
