Police officers have been banned from using unmarked vehicles after increased police brutality was witnessed in past few weeks,this comes just in time when Kenyans had lodged complaints to police bosses on increased extortion from juniors officers who normally use unmarked cars,a senior police officer who was giving the reason why officers have been stripped this privilege claimed that police officers were misusing this opportunity in making unauthorized arrests and stealing from businessmen,further police officers who will be found making arrest in areas they are not stationed will be dealt with accordingly.
However arrests in bars and places of business will be raided only by officers wearing the blue uniforms and not jungle green or civilian clothes,this was explained as a way of cabbing those who normally attack places clubs without the authority of their commanding officer,any police officer who will be found conducting operations in such circumstances will be deemed as a criminal and he will be dealt like a one.
In Karen few days ago an officer was seen grabbing bottles of alcohol in a joint which angered police bosses,the second incident was when a probox hit a businessman in kayole killing him instantly,this move has been championed by club owners who have been lamenting on increased extortion and harassment from law enforcers.
