The Inspector General of Police, Joseph Boinnet and the Deputy Inspector of Police reported to office wearing the New Police Uniforms;Most Kenyans ‘hate’ the new kits.
The new uniforms received disapproval from majority of Kenyans, today. We sample some comments from persons with dissenting opinions:
- Kiama Muturi: “This is for sure without doubt the most ugly uniform in Kenyan police since the colonial era. Just look at the Aid De camp of Tanzania President. Looks like a locust executive. Very bad choice.”
- Cyprian Kombo: “At least the High school uniform for our police this is resemblance of China police force.”
- Duncan Makori: “Looks like a scene from a Nigerian witchcraft movie.”
- Kakai: “When my dad first started out in the Kenya police force, wearing the uniform was a sense of pride and it really inspired me , and it was respected in the community for what the police force was all about. Unfortunately today this uniform doesn’t inspire.”
