Police urged to embrace reforms

17 July 2012, 15:30 Joy Monday

Trans Nzoia County Commissioner Charity Chepkonga has called on the police in the region to embrace reforms and stop abetting crime and extra judicial execution.

Chepkonga said the country has made major steps in the fight for human rights and insisted the administration and regular police should be on the front line to spread the reform agenda.

“You must protect the rights of Kenyans and nobody would be spared if found engaged in extra-judicial killings,” she warned.

She warned the police against using their positions to further their personal interests at the expense of maintaining law and order.

“The tendency by some of officers to harass members of the public using your positions is unethical and must end,” she warned.

Accompanied by North Rift Regional Administration Police commander Philip Kilonzi, Chepkong’a also revealed that extra security personnel will be deployed to the region in readiness for the forth coming general elections.

“The government will employ more security officers in a bid to prevent a repeat of violence witnessed in the last general elections,” revealed the commissioner.

She was speaking at an occasion to honour 18 administration police officers in Trans Nzoia West District who were promoted to various ranks.
