LSK will censure Kimaiyo over Iringo warrant

26 February 2014, 14:26 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The Law Society of Kenya will censure Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo if he does not follow through with the arrest of Interior PS Mutea Iringo.

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.

LSK chair Eric Mutua said in a statement Wednesday that the act by Kimaiyo not to arrest Iringo would provide grounds for LSK to press for his removal from duty due to negligence.

"  The country can survive a debate over failure by Parliament to obey a court decision which the House views as infringing on the Constitutional mandate of the legislature. We cannot however afford a situation where the I.G tells the court and the public that he will not execute a warrant on account of the fact that it is directed to a senior member of government,” said Mutua.

But in a rejoinder, Kimaiyo said he had no reason whatsoever not to arrest Iringo.

 “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 his office will act accordingly once the warrant of arrest is imposed.

Iringo has flouted a number of arrest warrants and it waits to be seen if the latest instruction from the courts will be heeded by the police.
