Despite being pregnant, a female police officer took to social media to expose her employers for what she described as abuse and extreme harassment. The event, which occurred a few weeks ago, is believed to have caused her to almost miscarry owing to despair brought on by work-related stress.
According to a social media post to prominent blogger Edgar Obare, whom she confided in, police constable Swaleh Rehma detailed how her supervisor, the officer commanding Station (OCS) Langata where she was stationed at the front desk, put her through a difficult period. She was brought to the OCS's office, where she was scolded and chastised in front of other younger officers and members of the public for allegedly missing work. Despite her doctor's medical letter, the OCS tore it up and tossed it back in her face, showing no remorse.
This, according to Rhema, was necessary by her problematic pregnancy and the fact that she was required to report to work despite the fact that she was 7 months pregnant. Her feet swelled to the point where she had to be taken to a Nairobi medical institution. The police officer is pleading with her superiors and decent Kenyans to help her obtain justice.
