The Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai has asked Kenyans to take videos of rogue police officers in a move he says will end police brutality.
In a Twitter chat with Kenyans on Monday, Mutyambai noted that some incidences of brutality happen in remote areas making it hard for them to be traced and dealt with.
“We encourage all citizens to keep reporting cases of police brutality. I’m aware some of these cases occur at night and others in remote parts of Kenya. Forward videos to us,” the IG said.
At the same time, Mutyambai noted that the police force is set to embark on retraining all officers to curb such incidences.
The latest comes after Kenyans protested increased incidences of police brutality in which scores of Kenyans have either sustained injuries of lost their lives.
A report released on June 2 by the Independent Policing Oversight Authority (IPOA) says 15 people have been killed and 31 others injured by police officers since Kenya heightened security measures to curb the spread of the novel Coronavirus.
