Kimaiyo: Do not politicize police security operation

28 April 2014, 10:32 Joseph Njung’eh

Nairobi - Political leaders should not politicize the ongoing police security operations, Inspector General of police David Kimaiyo has said.

Kimaiyo, instead said Kenyans should give law enforcement agencies room to do what they have been mandated by law so as to ensure there is peace and security in the country.

He asked the civil society to make balanced observations and objective criticisms in regard to the operation.

“I am also appealing to members of the civil society that although they may have dissenting opinions over security operations; they should equally have the plight of victims of crime and terror in their minds and make balanced observations and objective criticisms,” said Kimaiyo in a statement.

He maintained that security agencies will not be detracted from achieving the objectives of the operation since they will continue to deal with all criminal elements in the society.

“The citizens also have a duty to be vigilant at all times and share with law enforcement agencies any relevant and timely information which may help interdict or pre-empt acts or incidents of crime which will directly or indirectly disrupt our peace and tranquility,” he stated.

However, Kimaiyo announced that the two police officers who survived the Pangani blast have been promoted to Sergeant and Corporal ranks.

“Cpl Samuel Kabiru and PC Alex Ndara who survived the incident have also been promoted to the ranks of Sergeant and Corporal respectively with effect from the date of that incident,” he said.

Investigations in the incident are ongoing and three suspects have been arrested and arraigned in court.
