The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

In­te­rior CS Joseph Nkaissery will to­day meet MPs to re­spond to a pe­ti­tion on po­lice bru­tal­ity.

The pe­ti­tion be­fore the Na­tional As­sem­bly Com­mit­tee on Ad­min­is­tra­tion and Na­tional Se­cu­rity was drafted by West­lands MP Ti­mothy Wany­onyi on be­half of Univer­sity of Nairobi stu­dents.

In­spec­tor Gen­eral Joseph Boin­nett and In­de­pen­dent Polic­ing Over­sight Author­ity chair­man Macharia Njeru will be present.

They will tell the com­mit­tee what they have done to deal with rogue po­lice of­fi­cers ac­cused of ha­rass­ing stu­dents.

They will also give de­tails of how many com­plaints have been re­ceived and what ac­tion has been taken against the said of­fi­cers.

There have been al­le­ga­tions of po­lice bru­tal­ity, es­pe­cially dur­ing demon­stra­tions.
