POLICE OFFICERS BANNED FROM HAVING VISITORS
Police Rules Kenya: Police officers in Kenya have been banned from having visitors over without first seeking permission from their bosses. This order was issued on June 30 by the Deputy Inspector General of Police Aineah Olweywe and will mainly affect police officers living in lines.
“Any officer wishing to bring relatives or friends into the lines shall obtain written permission from orderly N.C.O (In-Charge Lines and Discipline) and shall be registered. Unauthorised person shall be registered. Unauthorised persons shall be excluded from police lines,” Olweywe said.
This command was then sent to all Regpols Formation/Unit Commanders, County and Sub-County Commanders.
A few months ago, the Inspector General of Police banned police officers from airing their grievances on social media. This came after two female officers protested against their bosses who were alleged to have been harassing them.
Earlier in the year, Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i announced that cops would also be banned from marrying other officers. According to the minister, police officers who break this rule will have to leave service. “Moving forward, it will be illegal for a police officer to date or get married to a fellow officer,” he said on the new police rules Kenya.
