Kenyans online make fun of new police uniform

- in News

President Uhuru Kenyatta on Thursday unveiled new police uniform for the General Duty officers.

In the new changes, the President said the Persian-blue shirt/blouse, trousers and beret are for better “visibility”.

“It’s important for everybody and especially the police officers to know that the Kenyan people are funding these changes so that the police can  serve the people better,” President Uhuru Kenyatta said.

He further added that the police should be respected and not feared.

However, a section of Kenyans online criticised the choice of colour and design of the police uniform with some saying it looked “dull and old fashioned”.

Below are some of the tweets:

The Uniforms for our newly unified Kenya Police is Ugly, Dull , Old fashioned & Uninspiring … The Beret is worse … They look like Salvation Army Band … Police Uniform must be one that shows fitness & inspires fear … Here, we were conned …
