COFEK opposes order to remove tinted car windows

14 May 2014, 10:18

Nairobi - The Consumer Federation of Kenya (COFEK) has opposed the Inspector General of Police’s order requiring car owners to abstain from tinting their car windows.

The consumer body termed IG David Kimaiyo’s order as illegal and said that it could not be implemented immediately.

“The order by IG of Police on removal of all vehicles is illegal and cannot be implemented immediately. We will ask our lawyers to challenge the move,” said a statement from COFEK following the police’s announcement.

The statement further said that all vehicles belonging to the President, Cabinet Secretaries, MPs and other dignitaries should have tints.

COFEK added the IG’s order “should only, if necessary, apply to PSVs and not private vehicles.”

Kimaiyo had ordered that all cars with tinted windows should be impounded immediately saying that the directive is part of measures to contain terror activities across the country.

Police spokesperson, Zipporah Mboroki, confirmed that all vehicles with tinted windows are to be impounded with immediate effect.

The removal of tinted windows order is the latest security measure being taken by the government in a bid to fight terrorism.

Public service vehicle owners have begun screening passengers as they board vehicles.

Others are asking for identification documents of passengers as a requisite for traveling.
