Isitatimende se-IPOA sikhishwe ekuqaleni kwaleli sonto njengoba iMelika ibigcwele intukuthelo ngenxa yesihluku samaphoyisa nokucwasana ngokobuhlanga kulandela ukubulawa komunye umuntu omnyama, UGeorge Floyd, ezandleni zamaphoyisa amhlophe.

Izishoshovu kwezokuxhumana zenhlangano zenze okufanayo nesihlava sokuhlukumezeka kwamaphoyisa eKenya, okuvame ukungaholwa.

Amaphoyisa aseKenya ajwayele umsolwa ngamaqembu amalungelo okusebenzisa ngokweqile nokwenza ukubulala ngokungemthetho, ikakhulukazi ezindaweni ezimpofu.

Ngo-Ephreli, abakwaHuman Right Watch (HRW) basola amaphoyisa ngokuphoqa isikhathi sasemakhaya ngendlela “enesiphithiphithi futhi enodlame kusukela ekuqaleni”, kwesinye isikhathi bekhahlela, bekhahlela futhi ehlikihla abantu ukuze babaphoqe ukuba baphume emigwaqweni.

Kwabanye, umthengisi wamatamatisi ushone entshonalanga neKakamega ngemuva kokushayiswa ngumbhobho kaphethiloli we-izinyembezi, kuyilapho amadoda amane eshaywa abulawa ezingxenyeni ezahlukene zezwe.

"Kuyamangaza ukuthi abantu balahlekelwa izimpilo zabo kanye nezindlela zabo zokuziphilisa ngenkathi kuthiwa bavikelekile ekuthelelekeni," kusho u-Otsieno Namwaya, umcwaningi we-HRW ophakeme wase-Afrika, wathi ngaleso sikhathi.

Embikweni wangoFebhuwari ocaphuna ukubulawa kwabantu okungenani abayisishiyagalombili endaweni yaseNairobi abahola kancane, abakwa-HRW bathi amaphoyisa "ayaqhubeka nokubulala abasolwa ngobugebengu nababhikishi ngegazi elibandayo yize ephokophela izingcingo zokuqeda ukubulawa kwabantu nokusebenzisa amandla amakhulu".

UNgqongqoshe wezangaPhakathi uFred Matiangi ngoLwesihlanu ukugxekile ukweqiwa ngamaphoyisa, "kodwa bavele ngaphandle kokudweba yonke le nkonzo ngebrashi efanayo", kusho ihhovisi lakhe esitatimendeni.

"Sinezinselelo ekusebenzeni kwethu komthetho, ngakho-ke kumele sonke sisukume siqale ukubhekana nabo ngokubumbene esikhundleni sokwenza ukubandlululana ngamaphoyisa," kusho uMatiangi.

Ngokwesitatimende, umshushisi omkhulu wezwe uNoordin Haji usungule uphiko oluphenya amacala aphenya ngamacala odlame lwamaphoyisa, kanti njengamanje usebenza amacala ayi-171 anjalo anesihluku, angama-81 awo asenkantolo.

NgoLwesine, i-IPOA imemezele ukuthi kuzoboshwa amaphoyisa ayisithupha futhi ashushiswe, elinye ngokubulawa kukaMoyo, elinye ngokudubula abulale uthisha wesikole sesibili ngenkathi ephendula ngokugqekeza kwakhe emakethe entshonalanga yeSiaya, kanye nabanye abane ngokushaya kanzima umuntu ngesikhathi sokuboshwa.

Ekuqaleni kuka-Ephreli, uMongameli Uhuru Kenyatta waxolisa ngalolu dlame kulandela ukuphoqelelwa kwehora lesikhathi.

"Ngifuna ukuxolisa kuwo wonke amaKenya ngoku ... ngokweqile okwenziwe," kusho ngaleso sikhathi. "Kodwa ngifuna ukukuqinisekisa ukuthi uma sisebenza ngokubambisana, uma sonke siqonda ukuthi le nkinga iyasidinga sonke, futhi uma sidlulela ngasikhathi sinye, sizonqoba."
