BIG BLOW to Cleopas Malala as His Police Security is Withdrawn Over his Speech

The National Police Service Commission (NPSC) has announced that Senator Cleophas Malala of Kakamega's security detail has been withdrawn.

In a statement issued on Sunday, May 29, NPSC Chairperson Eliud Kinuthia stated that the police employer would no longer tolerate situations in which its officers were mocked while on duty.

Malala's bodyguards will not be restored unless and until Malala properly apologized to police officers through their employer, according to Kinuthia.

"We are familiar with Senator Malala Yousafzai. You must come to the Police Station and make a proper apology. We have agreed with the Inspector General of Police, Hilary Mutyambai, that you will be free to move throughout Kakamega.

"You can make all those youth you allege have dropped out of school in Kakamega your security force if you want. My cops will not stand up for a politician who does not respect them "he explained.

The news comes only days after the Senator was caught on camera criticizing police work in the presence of cops on his campaign route.

Malala said in the video that working in the police force did not require any educational qualifications.

NPS, on the other hand, did not take the lawmaker's remarks lightly and issued a stinging statement criticizing them as insulting to such a noble profession that employs thousands of Kenyans, including graduates.

"We, the NPS fraternity, including our loving family and friends, are immensely dismayed by such unnecessary and harsh insults, which we find too humiliating and only serve to scandalize a great profession employed in the public service and good."

"Given that these awful words were made by a leader we not only hold in high regard but also continue to offer round-the-clock protection with pride and competency," the NPS statement read in part.
