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

CS Kithure Kindiki of the Interior Ministry was comforted by the advice of a grieving widow who told him what he must always do before deploying his officers to the front lines.

Simiyu, a widow who spoke at a memorial service for deceased police officers on December 16 at Embakasi AP training College, Nairobi, said the government should not rush to send young police officers to battlefields.

Mrs Simiyu, who lost her husband in the Northeast this year, has advocated that young police officers without children should be required to wait at least three years of experience before being sent to restore order in troubled areas.

If she is right, that will make a big dent in the number of young police officers who perished in the line of duty without ever settling down to raise a family.

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