Kimaiyo orders investigations into assault on police officer

30 January 2014, 10:32 Nechesa Chemoi

Nairobi - Inspector General of Police, David Kimaiyo, has ordered investigations into Wednesday’s alleged assault against a police officer by Matatu operators who were demonstrating in Nairobi.

According to Kimaiyo, those found responsible for the alleged assault will be prosecuted for committing the crime.
“A person who assaults a police officer is guilty and liable to imprisonment for 5 yrs under Section 252(c) of the penal code,” said Kimaiyo.

The operators were protesting the alleged killing of a matatu conductor by unidentified people who posed as police officers on Tuesday.

“NPS Act 2011 section 61 justifiable uses of firearm; saving, self defense or protecting the life of the officer or other person,” said Kimaiyo, adding that, police officers should also familiarize themselves with unjustifiable/justifiable use of firearm under Section 51 of Service Standing order.

He however urged members of public to report any professional misconduct of police officers to the Independent Police Oversight Authority (IPOA), the Police Internal Affairs Unit and National Police Service Commission (NPSC).
