Interior Cabinet Secretary, Dr. Fred Matiang’i, has insisted that new police uniforms will be locally made. Speaking today at the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development, KICD, Dr Matiang’i said the government will not succumb to any pressure to procure the uniforms from abroad.
Speaking at the KICD, Dr Matiang’i said; “Buy Kenya, build Kenya. We have people who can work here in Kenya. We as the government need to provide employment to our people and importing such things is going against it.”
According to Matiang’i, the new police uniforms will be procured and made locally in line with the police reforms that were launched in the presence of the president, HE Uhuru Kenyatta, on 13th September 2018
Matiang’i made the pronouncement when he met with the National Assembly’s Parliamentary Caucus on the transport sector reforms.
