Kenya’s internal security minister released a report clearing law enforcement and military officials of abuse allegations in the country’s Mount Elgon District.
The results of the police investigation were made public by Internal Security minister Professor George Saitoti. “The government does not condone torture and, in any case, the joint forces were strictly directed to operate within the rule of law,” Prof Saitoti said.
The investigation threw out claims by human rights groups that police and military officials raped and tortured locals while on a mission to remove Sabaot Land Defense Forces from the Mount Elgon region.
