Matiang’i pays tribute to fallen officers, promises prompt payments to bereaved families

Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang’i has paid tribute to police officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty.

Speaking during the third annual memorial service in honour of the fallen, Dr Matiang’i said they offered selfless service and paid the ultimate price in the service of the nation.

The ceremony was held at the National Police Service Embakasi A Campus, with Inspector general of Police Hilary Mutyambai, Deputy I.G (police) Edward Mbugua, Deputy I.G (Administration Police) Noor Gabow, and DCI chief George Kinoti in attendance.

CS Matiang’i said steps have been taken to institutionalise the welfare of officers.

“With the creation of an accurate digital record of officers’ dependants and next of kin, the Services can expedite gratuity and benefits payments which were previously delayed over disputed relations and court cases on succession,” Matiang’i said.

The ceremony bringing together the National Police Service and Kenya Prison Service is an annual celebration designed to honour officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty every year.
