Kamiti prisoners climb on top of prison building protesting against mistreatment.

Kamiti prisoners went for a strike on January 14 to disagree with the mistreatment they receive from their seniors.

It all started with a hunger strike on Wednesday before turning into chaos on Thursday.

The detainees said the guards were difficult for them, especially after the escape of the three convicted terrorists who were picked up while they were fleeing Kitui.


According to them, the modus operandi in jail has taken over following a successful escape plan of convicted terrorists.

The prisoners overpowered the guards during the riots, prompting riot police to intervene.
