Khwalwale slammed as backward for celebrating lynching of suspect
[Warning: Graphic image]
Kakamega gubernatorial contest loser Boni Khalwale has come under attack after he celebrated the lynching of a suspected thief.
Khalwale posted a graphic image of the thief engulfed in flames as residents looked on.
This thug came to Malinya & robbed a bodaboda rider of his motor bike. Unfortunately he forgot that this's the land of bullfighters! pic.twitter.com/9wbT4gVX3g

But most people were not amused, calling out the former senator, known for his fight for justice.
Many called him a hypocrite.
You can’t on one hand fight for rule of law on elections then advocate for this. Are there no courts or jails in the land of bullfighters?

That’s a terrible image from your handle. It sends a wrong message sir. We all shun police brutality & should similarly shun mob justice.

Please pull down the picture.Its in bad taste for a leader to be seen to be advocating extra judiciary executions

Mheshimiwa, I have a lot of respect for you. But on this one, I think as a leader you are wrong on your attitude. Remember you are a leade r of both “saints” and “sinners”. You need to propagate and model rule of law. No one has right to take another’s life!

Honesty, there is nothing worth celebrating, when you take another’s life..Why not hand him to the relevant authorities?
