SOCIAL MEDIA ALLEGATIONS ON ASSAULT BY POLICE.

The attention of the National Police Service has been drawn to allegations doing rounds in the social media on alleged assault by police on members of the public in an estate within Nairobi.

UNFORTUNATE ATTACK TO THE INSPECTOR GENERAL NPS.
It is a very unfortunate attack on the Inspector General National Police Service. As director in charge of Corporate Communication Affairs and Human Rights, I have been addressing a number of issues as alleged on extra judicial killings by Police on his behalf.
The Inspector General[IG] is the chief spokesperson for the Police and I simply undertake that responsibility on his behalf.
Last week, on Friday 2/6/2020, the IG invited human rights groups in his office to address their grievances.
On the same day, the IG accompanied the CS Interior Dr Fred Matiang’i, The Attorney General, Chairman National Police Service commission, The Director of Public Prosecution, Chairperson Independent Police Oversight Authority, Deputy Inspector General [DIG] Kenya Police service, DIG Administration Police Service and Director Criminal Investigations to The Kenya School of Government to address grievances by members of civil society.
We have lately had cases where Police officers have been killed by civilians using machetes. The latest case being the killing of a 29year old Police officer by civilians in Lamu yesterday. The officer was attacked without provoking or even attempting to arrest anyone. To our surprise no civil society has condemned this unfortunate incident as if it is a normal incident for a police officer to be killed. Such actions widen conflict between police and criminals and promote panic amongst police while using their firearms in the course of duty.
It is not in the nature of the IG to shout. He is organized and does his work quietly. The IG is working tirelessly to promote good working relations between the members of the Public and Police officers. A number of police officers have been relieved of their duty and arraigned before court after internal disciplinary mechanism.
National Police Service remains committed in discharging its mandate and we shall always work within the law.
