Kimaiyo: Arresting Iringo 'embarrasing' the government

25 February 2014, 16:45 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - An arrest warrant issued to Interior Permanent Secretary Mutea Iringo might go unheeded after the police said it will amount to 'embarrassing' the government.

Iringo had been issued with a warrant of arrest by High Court judge George Odunga Monday after he failed to appear in court to answer to a court case.

Iringo had been required to state why a Tanzanian national had not been paid KES 31 million by the government over damages he won in court.

Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo had been ordered to arrest Iringo and bring him before the court but in a press conference, Kimaiyo's office stated a different stand.

" We do not want a situation where the government is embarrassing the government or we are not taking due course of action, Kimaiyo's spokesman Masoud Mwinyi said.

He however tried to clarify his comments by saying that he does not envision a scenario where the arrest warrant will not be heeded, saying an amicable way of sorting out the mess is being considered.

" It is not like he is in hiding. We are just looking for ways of doing it appropriately and that is what the inspector general is currently considering.

He added that the arrest will be done in the right time.

" The hope is that the process will be done in the appropriate way and at the appropriate time.

It is not the first time the PS has ignored an arrest warrant, after he also ignored court orders to appear before a court early this month for a case in which he is to pay a police officer KES 780,000 for wrongful arrest.

The incident will raise questions as to how much the executive respects the legislature, with several incidents of government officials dis-regarding court orders being mentioned.
