IG Koome Sends Stern Warning To Ruto's Allies After Doing The Following To The Police

The inspector general of police Japheth Koome has sent stern warning to the first in command's allies after doing the following to the police officers. It's alleged that some politicians are interfering with officers' activities despite president Ruto's pledge to have autonomous national police service.

According to the reliable source from the people's daily, the inspector general of police Japheth Koome has said that there's increasing cases of the senior government officials and politicians from Ruto's political divide causing threats and intimidation to the police officers as they undermine their independence. He has also revealed that in the recent days they have reports on state officials interfering with police operations.

For instance in a case involving land dispute in Nairobi, a senior government official got involved and allegedly directed the investigating officers not to take action against some suspects, the official further threatened to transfer the officers to another region. At the same time, Hon Gladys Boss Shollei was also caught on camera threatening some officers in Uasin Gishu to transfer them following cases that were reported in the area.

This however comes after the first in command William Ruto had promised the national police service to work independently without fear or intimidation as now Japheth Koome has reminded the politicians that all their threats are null and void and they will continue discharging their duties as per the constitution.
