Kenyans have been warned by the Independent Police Oversight Authority (IPOA) against attacking police officers.

IPOA said in a statement that such acts as criminal and an attempt at fostering anarchy.

“IPOA strongly condemns these attacks….With a serving Police Service and a robust Judiciary in place, it is unacceptable for anyone to take the law into their own hands,” the agency said.

This comes days after a tuk tuk operator in Nakuru was caught on camera throwing stones at two police officers.

A report in the Standard newspaper claims that the officers destroyed the operator’s windscreen and side mirrors.

“I got annoyed and demanded to be given answers, as they tried to intimidate me, saying there was nothing I could do to them,” he told the local newspaper.

Despite these claims, IPOA remained categorical that Kenyans cannot be criticising the police yet they perform the same acts that they condemn.
