Government Orders Suspension Of Security Guard filmed Assaulting Nairobi Woman

A security guard who was filmed assaulting a woman in one of Nairobi’s leafy suburbs has been suspended after the authorities completed investigating the incident that sparked public outcry.

The guard who was identified as Philip Kibira assaulted the lady who was recording an incident in which he had failed to open the gate for an African man but willingly did so for a foreign resident.

In a suspension statement issued by Private Security Regulatory Authority CEO Fazul Mohamed on Tuesday, April 16, the KK Security guard will further face other disciplinary actions including prosecution.

“Following preliminary investigations of the incident, we have ordered for the immediate suspension of the officer, an internal disciplinary process by the employer as well as reporting the incident to the nearest police station,” said Fazul.

The statement further disclosed the incident happened a Lobelia Court in Kilimani, Nairobi. Fazul cautioned security guards against such acts saying they amounted to violation of human rights and were punishable by law.

He said the authority was in advanced stages of initiating training programs to guards to ensure they provide services professionally.

“The Private Security Officer Training curriculum by the Authority is soon to be launched and is expected to standardise training for all private security officers and address such incidents and other outstanding issues in service provision,” he said.

In a video that was widely shared online, the guard attached to KK security was seen warning the woman against filming him as he walked towards her. When the agitated woman stood her ground and told the guard that his action amounted to racism, he hit her, disrupting the recording.
