Kimaiyo warns rogue police officers

10 January 2014, 10:07

Nairobi - Inspector General of Police, David Kimaiyo, cautioned officers against violating the law.

He said these would face severe punishment and be exposed to the full wrath of the law.

Kimaiyo expressed concern over the high number officers who opted to retire instead of facing the vetting board.

“They (board) are already mentioning some of those officers whom the commission was able to retire. They will face full consequences including dismissal from the service and be taken to court to face charges. So, this is a caution to all the officers,” said Kimaiyo.

This warning comes amid an ongoing vetting exercise of the senior police officers by the National Police Service Commission Chairperson, Johnstone Kavuludi.

The police force is rated as the most corrupt department in the country and efforts to rectify the mess have been registering minimal success.

So far, three officers scheduled for vetting opted to resign rather than face the vetting board, a move that Kimaiyo said would also be investigated.

The first phase of the vetting exercise saw three senior police officers lose their jobs after the Kavuludi-led commission found them incompetent.

The commission however gave the dismissed officers an option to appeal the decision if they felt aggrieved.
