The ODM's director of communications Mr Philip Etale, has come out to give his view on the directive issued by Doctor matangi about the police marriages. He is of the view that marriage restrictions is not a cure to the current problems affecting the Police service. He says that more need to be done in order to effectively redeem the Police service. Mr Etale highlights that all the police require for now is good pay, good working conditions, guiding and counselling among others. He was of the opinion that even if the police were to marry angels, they will still have challenges.
Taking on his Twitter handle Mr Etale says; "What police officers need is GOOD PAY, good LIVING CONDITIONS and STRESS MANAGEMENT... Without the three, even if they were allowed to marry ANGELS, they would still do the same thing".
Dr. Matiang'i, who is the cabinet secretary for interior had given instructions to the inspector General of police to effect a policy which will bar Police from marrying fellow policemen.
