CS Matiangi Present as President Uhuru Gives New Voice of Power to Police

President Uhuru Kenyatta has given a new voice of power to the National Police Service-NPS as the country heads to the August 9 general elections.

The President was speaking in Nyeri where he attended the police graduation ceremony at Kiganjo on Thursday where he asked the police to remain bold and ignore intimidations.

President Uhuru has asked police to perform their duties without fear of contradiction and intimidation.

More importantly, he asked them to work as directed by the oath they made when they resumed office

"To all who serve in our national police service, you must not allow political intimidation to interfere with your work.

"In line with your oath of office, you are supposed to execute your work without fear or favour or intimidation from any quarter,"' he gave the voice of command.

Interior CS Dr Fred Matiang'i was present when the President gave the directive.

His words come a few days after Deputy President William Ruto's UDA party wrote a letter to the government, alleging the existence of state-sponsored political violence.

Police on Wednesday also released a report refuting claims by UDA by stating that the claim by the party was baseless.
