Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet has moved to reassure Kenyans of their security in the wake of security threats posed by radical criminal groups.
Addressing administration police officers in Nairobi, Boinett said the government has instituted crucial reforms aimed at revolutionizing the security sector even as he called on members of the service to embrace ongoing police reforms.
The opportunity presented Boinnet with a chance to rally his juniors into embracing the ongoing reforms within the police service.
And amid concerns over poor working conditions, the police boss was quick to tabulate the government’s achievements promising decent housing, adequate equipment as well as reasonable packages.
And a week after police foiled a terror attack at the Mombasa central police station, Boinnet said that the government has embarked on an initiative that will see all police stations across the country secured, a position echoed by interior principal secretary Karanja Kibicho.
Three suspects have since been arraigned in court in connection with the attack even as the 4th suspect Hania Said Sagar – wife to the slain Muslim cleric Aboud Rogo – was put in remand for 7 days to allow police complete investigations on her alleged link to the suspects.
