Boinett puts thugs, hate speech mongers put on notice in 2016

01 January 2016, 15:56 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinett has warned thugs and hate speech mongers of a tough time come 2016.

Boinett said in his new year's speech that police officers countrywide are under firm instructions to act accordingly on anyone found in possession of firearms.

“We are going to strictly enforce the amended Firearms Act which provides for harsher penalties to those found holding illegal firearms,” he said in a statement on the Eve of the New Year, “This will particularly help in the management of cases related to the proliferation of small arms in the country.”

He also warned politicians found spreading hate will not be spared as the country approaches the election year in 2017.

“Those who may be planning to incite people into violence with the objective of evicting others for political reasons are hereby warned that police will not permit it,” the police chief said.

He urged Kenyans to continue working closely with the police in ensuring peace in the country.

“We urge members of the public to make use of our Command and Control Centres by calling 999, 911 and 112 which are operational 24 hours in case of need,” he said.
