Kisumu Acting Head of City Inspectorate Willy Lugusa has resigned following an incident where a female hawker was last week assaulted by city askaris.

Lugusa, in a letter to Governor Anyang’ Nyong’o, took responsibility for the act terming it as against all the rules of natural justice.

“I Wilberforce Lugusa Ndagona do hereby tender my resignation as the acting Head of The Inspectorate of the County Government of Kisumu on account of the matter which occurred on the 24th of March, 2021 involving certain junior officers under my watch and a lady, a mother, grabbed and dragged along a street,” read the letter.

“The act committed was unconscionable, diabolical and against all the rules of natural justice. I hereby take full and moral responsibility for the acts committed thereto.”

He further added: “I hereby extend my deepest regret to all the people of Kisumu County and the nation as a whole, for this is not what the County Government of Kisumu represents. I take this opportunity to express my most sincere gratitude for the opportunity you gave me to serve in your most able government.”

Nine Kisumu County Government Askaris suspected to have been behind the humiliation of city trader Beatrice Magolo were last week arraigned at the Kisumu Law Courts.

The nine enforcement officers were accused of causing bodily harm on the woman after they dragged her by a vehicle on tarmac road.
