Is the Kenya Police Effective ?
Sample these headlines, “Police await Interpol nod to arrest fugitive” and “Police reluctant to arrest Philip Moi”. The two cases involve sons of two former presidents Rupiah Banda of Zimbabwe and Daniel Moi of Kenya respectively. According to Kenya’s leading sleuth, a Mr. Ndegwa Muhoro,
loosely translated Muhoro means; the cold one, our local law enforcement guys need the following before arresting the Zambian fugitive:
a) Body physique of Mr Henry Banda. Height, weight etc.
c) Facial features
e) Palm print
f) Hand Geometry
g) Iris recognition
h) His last known body Odour
For Phillip Moi, there is a warrant of arrest issued by the high court but our boys in blue are treating it with contempt. The Police argue that; “Court orders in Nairobi have to sanctioned by the PPO(Provincial Police Officer), a man who remains elusive just like the two wanted outlaws. Can the Kenyan police be trusted to administer Justice?
