Kenya’s Inspector General of Police has ordered the prosecution of a white pilot who was captured on camera assaulting a police woman.
The pilot, who has not¬†yet been¬†named, was hired to fly Deputy President William Ruto to a political rally in central Kenya over the weekend, when the incident occurred.
A spokesman for Mr¬†Ruto has condemned the incident and asked police to take action.
In a video footage, the visibly angry pilot can be seen approaching the police woman shouting at her to do her job by controlling a crowd that was milling around the helicopter.
He then grabs a swagger stick from the policewoman and moments later shoves her towards the crowd.
The police have¬†now requested the pilot to surrender himself to the nearest police station and for investigators to start criminal proceedings against him.
The deputy president¬†said he had¬†been made aware of the “unacceptable and regrettable incident” and asked the police to investigate what he described as the¬†unbecoming behavior of the pilot.
The video has gone viral on social media with many angry Kenyans using a hashtag calling for the deportation of the pilot.
