Inspector General Japhet Koome was outraged by the police officer who was caught on camera threatening a driver and said that the issue was being investigated and that the officer will be subjected to internal disciplinary measures if necessary.

The IG further stated that any officer found abusing their privileges will not be protected by the service.

Following the release of a viral video showing a police officer pulling out a firearm during a confrontation with a truck driver, the National Police Service (NPS) began an investigation to detain the officer.

The police department's spokesperson said that the officer will be disciplined legally after complete investigations.

The video was posted on Thursday, February 23, and runs for two minutes. In it, an officer can be heard threatening to shoot the vehicle's tires.

The police officer claimed that the motorist displayed rude behaviour and disobeyed regulations.

A subset of Kenyans claims that the video exposed the country to a "ticking time bomb" of police officers struggling with mental health issues.

Others have advised law enforcement to exercise patience with harried drivers, especially those on the road for some time.
