They have maintained position one in almost all
categories when it comes to awards the last
one was when they were declared position one
And when it’s comes to individuals breaking the
law, the position is firmly theirs where they were
recently accused of aiding citizens failing to
adhere to the current curfews and Coronavirus
In the list of unlawful custodial, extra judicial
killings they have strongly maintained the first
position with IPOA accusing them of not
following the laid down regulations and acting
professionally in line with the law.
Most of the cases forwarded for Prosecution
within the Judicial system are weak or with loopholes ,due
to rushed arrest and fabrications of charges which
cannot withhold convictions “wacha nifanye
iniondokee” translated as, rushing to complete
assignments without considering the merits,
effects and objectives.
Ten years ago, elected Siaya County Senator
James Orengo called for the retraining of the
Country National Police Officers after realising
that majority were not atper with the Morden
changes of life, technology and the change or
review of laws .
The Kenya National Police Service rebranded
from Kenya police force on several occasions
has been accused of violating the law and
acting with impunity, especially when it comes
to arresting offenders, calming demonstrations
where the 2010 new Constitution of the
Republic of Kenya Article 49 clause 1 (a), (c) ,
(d) ,(f) and clause 2 is commonly violated by the
law enforcement Officers.
And several law enforcement officers have been
arrested for taking bribes, engaging in crime
and conspiring in criminal activities especially
the youthful newly recruited at the age bracket
of twenty to thirty years old.
Recently a serving youthful Kenya police Officer
in his early 20s and based at Kabete Police
station Kiambu County, was arraigned before
Nairobi’s Senior Principal Magistrate together
with his two co accused where they were
charged with stealing and being in possession
of Government stores.
Kenya police Officer Martin Munyi Ireri the first
accused from right in the photo below , Paul
Mwangagi Mutunga second accused and
Jeremiah Ngigi Mburu third accused pleaded
not guilty to several counts of stealing and
being in possession of Government stores.
The accused were freed on a lenient bond of 0.5
Million surety of the same or a cash bail of 0.2
million Kenya shillings, due to the coronavirus
pandemic terrorising the entire World and with
the Prison departments within the Country
banning new admissions for remandees.
