SUSPECT HATE SPEECH BY CERTAIN MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT
The attention of the National Police Service has been drawn to the statements attributed to Hon. Aisha Jumwa, Hon. Timothy Bosire, Hon.Ferdinand Waititu, Hon.Junet Mohamed, Hon.Kimani Ngunjiri, Hon.Moses Kuria and Senator Johnstone Muthama made in the last few days that are said to be laced with ethnic hatred, vilification and border on incitement
On behalf of the National Police Service, I take this opportunity to wish our Muslim brothers and sisters Ramadhan Kareem as they observe this Holy Month.
Ramadhan, as we all know, is a period in which our Muslim brothers and sisters re-dedicate themselves to the Faith, through prayer and goodwill to their neighbors. However, the tranquility that ought to come with the Holy Month is at times desecrated by terror groups to commit atrocities on innocent civilians.
The Inspector General of Police Mr. Joseph Boinnet today received 541 reflective jackets and 504 stab jackets, a donation from a Police organization based in UK known as National Police Aid Convoys.
The donations were made through the International Police Association (IPA) Kenya Section President Mr. Otieno Osur.
While receiving the donation, Mr. Boinnet hailed the International Police Association (IPA) Kenya Section for developing an international network for the benefit of both serving and retired Police Officers.
The Inspector General of Police Mr Joseph Boinnet has reiterated the commitment of Police officers to respect the rights and fundamental freedoms of wananchi while discharging their mandate.
Mr. Boinnet said, the promulgation of the 2010 constitution coupled with the ever changing social, economic and political environment, has made it imperative for the Police officers to operate with decorum to endear themselves to the public they serve.
The National Police Service (NPS) will attach 200 police officers to reinforce the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) to restore order and reduce carnage on the Kenyan roads.
The Inspector General of Police Mr. Joseph Boinnet said this today while signing an MOU with the NTSA at his Jogoo House Office.
He said, the MOU will go a long way in achieving the common objective of a safe, reliable, efficient transport system and proper enforcement of Traffic Laws in the country.
