"It Is Painful" Emotional Widow Tells CS Kindiki What To Do When Sending Soldiers To Battlefield

A mourning widow's words of wisdom to Interior Ministry CS Kithure Kindiki on what he must always do before sending his officers to the front lines brought him peace.

On December 16th, at a memorial service for fallen police officers held at the Embakasi AP training College in Nairobi, a widow named Simiyu spoke out against the hasty deployment of young police officers to the battlefield.

After losing her husband in the Northeast this year, Mrs. Simiyu has argued that young, childless police officers should have to wait at least three years of service before being deployed to restore peace in volatile regions.

If her prediction comes true, it will significantly reduce the number of promising young police officers who have been killed on the job before they could start families of their own.

"If they had a child, at least you can say even if they died, they have left me a child," she said at the event.
