The National Police Service (NPS) has been angered by demeaning remarks against police officers that Kakamega senator Cleophas Malala made in public during Kenya Kwanza campaigns in Kakamega.

The senator claimed that one needs not to be educated so as to gain entry into the police service. According to him, the only qualification required is to have hands to hold the guns and legs.

Responding to him, NPS,  through the police spokesperson Bruno Shioso, said the police were disappointed by the remarks made by a leader who is still aspiring to lead yet he is provided protection with the same people he was demeaning.

“That, more disappointed we are as police, given that these unfortunate remarks were made by a leader we not only hold in high esteem but we also continue to provide round the clock  protection with pride and competency,” part of NPS statement read.

NPS further said that the police depend on knowledge “and guns are only  complementary  tools to achieve efficiency and service , not otherwise.”

The police body further noted that  it comprises competent, professional, knowledgeable and highly skilled officers.

According to NPS, Malala’s remarks are only aimed at causing disaffection amongst police officers.

The Inspector general of police went ahead to laud police officers who provided security at the event for remaining calm and composed despite the humiliating statement.

The Kakamega senator  has since apologized to the police department saying that his remarks were taken out of context.

“My attention has been drawn to a video circulating on social media about my utterances on the Police. I wish to categorically state that my remarks were taken totally out of context. Their importance to us cannot be overlooked. It is in light of this that I wish to withdraw my remarks and apologize to our disciplined forces for the discomfort my remarks may have caused,” he said through his official social media accounts.
