VIDEO: Kenyan Police Laments Government's Decision If Their Salaries Won't Be Reviewed

Graduate police officers have come out to lament a decision by their employer that is the National Police Service (NPS) to have their salaries slashed. The police constables revealed that close to sh. 30,000 was deducted from their payslip.

The constables stated that the affected cops were earning negative salaries this is following Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai's directive.

Mutyamabi directed the changes to be effected explaining that the court of appeal had overturned the decision of the high court that gave the officers a reprieve. Mutyambai defended the move saying that the move will bring fairness within the service.

Officer whose name is withheld stated that the move will gravely affect them together with their families.

"We feel discriminated. We do not know how we are going to meet our basic needs. How will I feed my family? I do not know why the IG came up with that decision. We are so much aggrieved and we feel that what he is doing is totally unfair,” the officer stated.

Another officer reveals that he has been earning sh. 71, he added that the move will result to unlawful activities urging the IG to review the issue.

"If you can remember the officer who was offered Ksh150,000 for information. If you are faced with such a situation and you are earning a negative salary of Ksh7,000 or Ksh2,000 or even Sh. 71 in my case, I might be forced to take that," he stated.
