Dreaded anti-crime officer, Hessy Wa Kayole says he would rather face jail time than spare an armed thug.
Hessy has been behind some of the most dramatic gunning down of city thugs in recent times- most notably, the elimination of key leaders of the dreaded Gaza gang.
His confession comes hot in the wake of a court sentencing that sent the famous Titus Musila alias Katitu on a 15-year jail term.
In his day, Katitu was a dreaded Githurai-based anti-crime officer who gunned down notorious criminals.
High court Judge James Wakiaga ruled that despite Katitu’s popularity in fighting crime, justice does not work on the premise of fame.
The tough ruling is said to have sent shivers down the spines of Nairobi anti-crime officers.
Among them, the social media-famous Hessy wa Kayole who has been lauded for dealing with rampant crime in Nairobi Eastland Estates.
He is known for sending warning to thugs and executing them when they refuse to heed.
Hessy has faulted the courts for punishing an officer whose job was to eliminate trigger-happy city thugs.
He argues that police officers are getting gunned down by thugs who later walk scot-free, wreaking more havoc.
Yesterday, James Thumbi a police officer who was gunned down in Mowlem a fortnight ago was laid to rest Tetu, Nyeri.
Of that, Hessy says that he too knows that he will die someday, but for now, he will get the job done.
