Friday, 18 March 2022 – Inspector general of police, Hillary Mutyambai, has reacted to the viral video in which a motorist, who was driving a BMW, was recorded assaulting a traffic police officer.

Mutyambai condemned the act and said the suspect, who was reportedly drunk, is in custody pending arraignment in court.

Here’s the full statement by the police boss.

Our attention is drawn to a viral video doing rounds on social media where a motorist is captured attacking a traffic police officer who was attending to a scene of an accident.

NPS wishes to condemn this ugly incident which displayed open disrespect to an officer of the law who was actively engaged on his official duties.

With the aid of members of the public and other police officers who were driving past, the suspect was apprehended and he is being processed to answer to appropriate charges.

Section 103 of the National Police Service Act No. 11A of 2011 provides for a harsh punishment against an act of aggression towards a police officer on official duty. This includes a fine of 1 million shillings and imprisonment to a period of ten years.

Our sincere gratitude to the members of the public who came to the aid of our officer. We urge the public to cooperate with the police in their duty of keeping our communities safe.
