The Police Inspector General Joseph Boinnet has rubbished the allegations that the Oilce brutally attacked the NASA demonstrators saying the police were acting within the law.

Mr. Boinnet has also dismissed the allegations that the police are working with the Military in Election rigging.  People have been encouraged to stay indoors after the elections on 26th October 2017.

However, Mr. Boinnet’s claim has been dismissed as “lies” by Nasa MPs John Mbadi (Suba South) and Opiyo Wandayi (Ugunja), who accused the police of using every excuse in the book to “brutally murder innocent protestors exercising their constitutional right to demonstrate peacefully.”

In a statement through Police Spokesman George Kinoti, Mr Boinnet said attacks on police and police station would not be tolerated.

“Such attacks will be deemed, among other violations of the law, as an attempt to steal firearms, and will elicit the appropriate response,” Mr. Boinnet said.

But the Nasa legislators, accusing the police of “exhibiting trigger-happy tendencies”, said the “purported” warning by the Mr. Boinnet is a desperate move to justify the “brutal killings of unarmed civilians” fighting for their rights.

The Police are ready for the elections and the officers who manned the last elections will also be available for the same purpose.  More 40, 000 police from the different department will be deployed during the elections to contain peace.
