Through a 2-paged statement posted on their Twitter handle, NPS termed Senator Malala's remarks as unfortunate and demeaning to the Kenyan police force.
"We as NPS fraternity, including our dear families and friends, are utterly disappointed with such unwarranted and outrageous remarks, which we find too demeaning and only aimed at scandalising a noble profession deployed in the service and good of the public," read part of the NPS press release to the media.
NPS was responding to a viral video of Senator Malala sensationally claiming that those who joined the police service are or should be school dropouts.
The Kakamega senator was speaking while on a campaign trail in Khwisero in the company of ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi. Malala received a barrage of criticism from netizens who accused him of disrespecting the Kenyan police.
