Nairobi - The Law Society of Kenya (LSK) has differed with the Inspector General of police, David Kimaiyo over his directive to have all vehicles with tinted windows impounded.
LSK chairman Makau Mutua said the organization was willing to defend owners of vehicles that would be impounded for having tinted windows, adding that Kimaiyo had failed to clearly interpret the law.
Kimaiyo’s order had also been criticized by the Consumer Federation of Kenya (COFEK) saying it was illegal and that it could not be implemented immediately.
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 be impounded immediately saying that the directive was part of measures to contain terror activities across the country.
Further, the LSK has told motorists affected by the disorganization to ask for help from the body as regards representation in court.
