Intense rebellion has rocked police headquarters Vigilance House over
directive to have serving police officers contribute Sh60million for
the construction of Utumishi Girl’s Academy.
Through an internal communication dated December 7, 2017 signed by
Anti-Stock Theft Unit (ASTU) commandant Moses Kikului, every officer is required to contribute sh1000 spread out in ten months with monthly contribution of Sh100 totaling to Sh60million.
The collection, which officers have termed as forced contribution is
earmarked for construction of two classes, one dormitory, kitchen and
an administration block.
The Girl’s school will be adjacent to Utumishi Boys.
“On behalf of all regions, formations, units and directorates, they
agreed that every serving police officer will contribute sh1, 000 to
be distributed in ten months.” Kikului said.
The resolution which members of the National Police Service (NPS),
especially officers serving in the lower cadres have vehemently opposed was reached during the Utumishi Academy Form One selection 2018 admission convened at Vigilance House.
Majority of the officers have opposed the plan saying only senior officers benefit to get slots for their kins in the academy.
Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet has remained mum on the issue.
