Alert Mutyambai: Police officers fighting bandits decry lack of facilitation

Hillary Mutyambai, Inspector General of Police

There’s a serious security issue in Northwest and North Eastern Kenya.

Bandits have been killing people, stealing animals and destroying property.

It being an election year, the government’s response has been dismal, lending suspicion to who the actors are.

Usually, in an election year, politicians sponsor violence so as to displace people who are deemed as opponents.

It is a criminal enterprise. Lawlessness unimaginable!

However, what is more, criminal is the habit of sending security officers to man those areas without enough planning.

According to one of the police officers who were sent to quell the bandit attacks in Marakwet, Kapedo and Marsabit, they have been subjected to hardship.

“We have not received our stipend, did Mutyamba (Inspector General of Police – IGP) and Mbugua (Deputy IGP) ‘eat’ our money?”, a police officer asked.

Where are you located, we inquired?

“I cannot say but the issue is that officers sent to Marakwet, Kapedo and Marsabit are suffering. We are supposed to be paid between Sh30k and Sh40k depending on location, but we’ve not seen a cent after months of being stationed in the different posts”.

“Money for food is also a problem. We have not received, we are tired of eating cabbage from Monday to Monday”, he bitterly concludes.

Edward Njoroge Mbugua, Deputy Inspector General of Police

The security of the northern frontier counties is important.

The conspiracy theory that some politicians fund and enable skirmishes seems true in the face of the mistreatment of our security forces.

Mutyamai would rather they escort useless pastors in illegal convoys than work for Kenyans who are the majority taxpayers.

Every Kenyan remembers Kapedo well and it is such history that ends up being exploited by bandits and bad political leaders to advance their diabolic goals.

The police officers in our northern frontier districts are doing their job.Send them their monies.

Hello Mutyambai, you need to address this issue before it degenerates into a shameful scene where police officers suffer low morale, depression, which forces them to turn the gun on their bosses or selves and makes other Kenyans shun such jobs.
