On Tuesday in the letters to the editor, Nation reader A. G. Patrick of Kisumu reader wondered if these GSU “beasts have children”.
Well, since watching the NTV clip of the Turkana boy being clobbered by the law enforcers, my mind has been terribly traumatised. Was this a dream or a horror movie? I’ve not been myself since. I’m certain all Kenyans who watched are sick.
The whole nation needs counselling. Where is Frank Njenga? The police commissioner must, this time round, act and not just talk tough.
I, however took consolation in the voice of reason that kept pleading with colleagues not to kill the boy. Reveal his identity so Kenyans know him. He inspires hope.

I wish there was a better way to congratulate Nation, particularly reporter Philip Bwayo. You are the first man in my life to report torture against the Pokot. But there is more.
I come from the Pokot community and have seen many things. It will take a decade to report but the little made known to the world is enough to lessen the brutality.
The Nation may want to visit other places in Lelan, Pokot South, Kacheliba in Pokot North among other places and revelations could be shocking. In 2005, the GSU let the Karamojong attack Katikomor, just kilometres from the Kerita camp. My family lost 437 cattle. The GSU are quick at beating harassing and confiscating livestock.
