National Police Service changes"/>
Through a statement on its official social media pages, the NPS said it had been attracted to remarks made by Balala on Wednesday claiming that police officers need not to be educated to carry out their work since they mostly use their hands and legs and not brain works.
The seemingly agitated NPS said the force together with their families and friends are disappointed by Malala's remarks made in Western Kenya, saying they are unwanted and outragious,
"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 scandalizing a noble profession deployed in the service and good of the public" read NPS statement.
"These unfortunate remarks were not only made by a leader of high esteem but one we also continue to provide round-the-clock protection with pride and competency." added the statement
NPS reiterated that NPS is a professional body composed of all learned professionals and highly skilled officers. It reassures all its officers and Kenyans of goodwill to ignore Malala's sentiments.
This was after Malala in a viral video, was heard making remarks that seemingly undermine police duties. He said their roles can be carried out by school dropouts.
"Si kazi ya polisi nikushika tu bunduki? Provided they got two arms and legs, let them join the police service. A police service job only entails handling firearms, which doesn't need training," stated Malala
He was speaking in Kakamega on Tuesday during a Kenya Kwanza rally.
