Citizen TV recently aired a dossier where rogue police were exposed for having a hand in criminal activities by hiring their working gadgets that included handcuffs,guns,bullets and even uniforms to robbers.
Director of Criminal investigation George Kinoti was the first high profile government official to speak about the matter and contrary to the expectations of many Kenyans,the DCI Boss took the side of the men in uniform.
He bashed Purity Mwambia who was the brains behind the exposè for tarnishing the name of the police officers terming the whole dossier as a malicious one.
Interior cabinet secretary Fred Matiang'i has however reiterated that the government is committed to putting to an end the mishandling of guns by police officers in the service and promised harsh measures will be taken against the perpetrators.
"The insights from the Administration and National Security Committee on the proposed amendments to the Firearms Act are exemplary.We hope to remedy all shortfalls in the arrest and prosecution of licensed gun holders for misusing their weapons."Matiang'i said.
The CS who was accompanied by principal secretary Karanja Kibicho further directed all civilian firearm owners to appear before the national security committee to certify whether they are fit enough to be in possession of a gun or not.
