The Star (Kenya) - - Politics Profile -

2013: “As a coun­try, we want to en­sure that we ad­dress is­sues of com­mand and con­trol of the po­lice, so that they can do their job. I am con­cerned that in a num­ber of ar­eas in Kenya, po­lice of­fi­cers have stayed in sta­tions for too long. For ex­am­ple, in my con­stituency, a po­lice­man has even be­come a pas­tor in the lo­cal church. On Sun­day, he is preach­ing, but over the week, he is col­lect­ing money from boda boda op­er­a­tors. These are is­sues that are symp­toms of very bad con­duct by the po­lice. We ex­pect him to help the In­spec­tor-Gen­eral to deal with these is­sues.”

2015: “They came here at 8am. They were led by a Mr Rukaria and a Mr Ndiema and two oth­ers whose names I can­not re­mem­ber. They were ac­com­pa­nied by two po­lice of­fi­cers car­ry­ing AK-47 ri­fles. They pro­duced a search war­rant, which I be­lieve was fake, and de­manded to see doc­u­ments show­ing how I ac­quired the house. After con­sult­ing my lawyers, I fur­nished them with the doc­u­ments, which they pe­rused be­fore leav­ing.”
