The new Kenya Police Service uniforms have inspired a whole bag of jokes and online memes. Some have likened them to outfits usually worn by security guards with private companies, while others have claimed that the new blue uniforms bare an unmistakable resemblance to those of Kenya Power. These smart Alecs have been naughty enough to pull in the Kenya Power initials, KP, and connect them to the Kenya Police initials, which are similar. Never mind that the official title for police is National Police Service, NPS.
The latest major personality to wade into the whole debate is the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga who also said that the new uniforms look like those worn by private security guards. As he mocked the new police uniforms, much to the delight and laughter of the journalists from Gukena Radio and other media houses who were interviewing him at his Karen home, he showed a preference for the navy blue uniforms, and pledged to change them.
He said that this would be done along with more extensive police reforms carried out to improve the service.
He was responding to a question regarding the state of police in the country, and his views on the issue with regards to recent events that have seen police implicated in the death of two Kianjokoma brothers and a killing in Kahawa West.
Meanwhile, on matters BBI, Raila says that any Kenyan is at liberty to move to the Supreme Court over the BBI bill as Kenyans were also involved in the process.
Although the two handshake partners had agreed to put the matter to bed after the Court of Appeal ruling, the ODM leader said that does not stop anyone from moving to court over the matter.
“Mimi na Rais Kenyatta tuliamua hatutaenda Supreme court kupinga uamuzi wa mahakama ya Rufaa, lakini mtu yeyote ana haki kuelekea malalamishi yake katika mahakama ya juu zaidi nchini,” Raila said on Friday.
According to the ODM leader, the BBI stoppage was going to affect several parts of the country where entire constituencies may be scrapped as well as deny certain regions a piece of the National cake.
