Kenyan Police Commissioner Receives Severed Head [Photo]
In a ghastly symbol, a severed head was sent to the head of Kenyan police commission, Johnston Kavuludi, who has been trying to introduce reform to the service. The box containing the head and two human hands covered in blood also included a forewarning message: “Kavuludi, you are next.” Kenyan officers are thought to be among the most corrupt in the region. Kavuludi was appointed last year to spearhead reform efforts to the Kenyan police which has been identified as one of the key areas needing help, following the widespread post-election violence five years ago which lead to the deaths of more than 1,000 people. Nairobi police chief Benson Kibui linked the head to the previous discovery of a torso on a farm outside the city.
