AG backs Uhuru’s directive to reinstate suspended police recruits

09 April 2015, 07:40 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi – President Uhuru Kenyatta’s directive that 10 000 police recruits immediately report to training colleges has received the backing of the Attorney General, Githu Muigai who insisted that the order should not be compromised.

Muigai hit back at the opposition and the Independent Policing and Oversight Authority (IPOA) for criticing the President’s move of prevailing over the court ruling that had suspended the entire police recruitment exercise over alleged massive irregularities.

The AG said, “We were dissatisfied by the court’s ruling of nullifying the entire recruitment exercise. It could have only nullified recruitment process in areas affected by malpractices.”

Kenyatta on Thursday last week directed the Inspector General of Police, Joseph Boinnet to ensure the 10 000 police recruits promptly report to their respective training colleges following the terrorists’ heinous killing of 148 Garissa University Students.

The President cited that the nation was suffering from many terror attacks due to inadequate police officers in the country.

“I take full responsibility for this directive. Kenya badly needs additional officers, and I will not keep the nation waiting,” Kenyatta had said in his speech.

However, IPOA on Tuesday vowed to sue Boinnet and the National Police Service Commission (NPSC) chairman, Johnstone Kavuludi for defying the court in implementing the President’s order.

Muigai was speaking at an inter-ministerial press briefing.
