Press Releases/Statements

NO RELENTING ON WAR AGAINST CONTRABAND.

Following our scaled-up interventions against illicit trade across the country, a multi-agency team on road block duties along Garissa-Thika Highway, at Ngutani, today intercepted a bus with plate number KBX 267K en route to Nairobi from Dadaab.

Preliminary inspection of the vehicle revealed that the under-floor of the passenger compartment had been illegally modified and fitted with secret storage bins which were stuffed with 49 cartons of Batook chewing gum; four cartons containing 25 pieces of Tres Orix-Forte appetite stimulant; five boxes containing 1000 sachets of pain relieving tablets; 286 tins of Red Cow milk powder (each 2.5kgs); 37 tins of Anchor milk powder (each 2.5kgs); and 42 tins of Nura milk powder (each 2.5kgs).

The manner and design of the said partitions not only allows for the concealment and transport of contraband goods but may also be used to ferry dangerous weapons and explosives.

Consequently, the officers arrested the driver and his two conductors as primary suspects.

They were booked and handed over to Ngutani Police Station for further action and arraignment in court. In this regard, I wish to profoundly commend the multiagency team, who are working tirelessly day and night to ensure safety and security of citizens and residents of Kenya.

My office is in consultation with other relevant authorities with a view to taking appropriate action on culpable individuals and organisations in the transport sector involved in such illegitimate business.

RESTRUCTURING OF THE NATIONAL POLICE SERVICE.

The Inspector General wishes to inform the general public that an alleged policy proposal on restructuring of the National Police Service (NPS) touching on the General Service Unit

and other Formations of the Kenya Police Service and Administration Police Service does not emanate from his office.

A report on page 6 of today’s Daily Nation, which is based on a document doing rounds in social media that the NPS is prepared to make the said changes is erroneous and does not reflect the position of the NPS.

The NPS is currently undertaking a reform journey in line with the Policy Framework and Strategy for Reorganization of the National Police Service unveiled on 13th September 2018: this is the only document which gives direction to our reform and restructuring agenda. Any information on the reform agenda and other NPS affairs originating elsewhere other than the office of the IG should be treated as inauthentic.

The IG has been working closely with stakeholders including the media about the path the NPS is taking and his office remains open for consultation on this front.

Officers are advised to continue serving the nation and not allow such unfounded reports to distract their focus.
