Nairobi - Inspector General of Police, David Kimaiyo has disowned remarks made on his behalf by his spokesman Masoud Mwinyi regarding the arrest of Interior Principal Secretary Mutea Iringo.
Earlier on, Mwinyi had indicated that the police would not arrest Iringo after a court issued a warrant of arrest against him because he would be embarrassed.
However, Kimaiyo disowned the statement saying no one was above the law.
“I want to make it clear without any contradiction that all Court orders once served to the National Police Service must be executed in accordance with the law, therefore no one is indispensable that cannot be arrested and prosecuted,” Kimaiyo said, adding that they will act accordingly once the warrant of arrest will be imposed.
He said the law applies equally to all people in the in our country and it will be followed accordingly.
The High Court had issued the arrest warrant against Iringo after he failed to appear in court to answer to a court case where a Tanzanian national had not been paid KES 31 million by the government over damages he won in court.
