Police operations to continue in Nairobi, Mombasa

07 April 2014, 12:22 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - The Inspector General of Police, David Kamaiyo has maintained that the ongoing police operations in Nairobi, Mombasa and other counties will continue.

Kimaiyo, in a statement issued to the press, said the officers would not relent in the exercise until every Kenyan is safe.

He exuded confidence of winning the battle against terrorism stating that police have increased their efforts to curb the levels of crime.

“Following the recent isolated incidents of crime in the country, we have increased our efforts to curb these levels of crime,” Kimaiyo stated.

He further ruled out claims by some civil society members that the police operations were targeting certain tribes and religions, stating that war against terrorism and other crimes is still on countrywide.

The IG however warned the police against engaging in any form of corruption.

“We have put proper mechanism to fight corruption and those who will be caught receiving and giving bribes during the operation will face the law,” said Kimaiyo.

“I warn officers who don't emulate the best and thanks to majority who have made us proud by handling citizens professionally with humane face,” he added.

He also confirmed that one police officer was shot dead while two others were injured by cattle rustlers  in Baringo after they successfully recovered cattle stolen at Kapindasam.

He said the police recovered three G3 rifles which were stolen from officers killed in Baragoi, four AK 47 illicit weapons and 207 rounds of ammunition.

Kimaiyo also noted that security operations in Baringo, West Pokot and Turkana County have already started yielding success.
