The Loss of National Police Service Police Officers in West Pokot and Baringo Counties
The Kenya National Commission on Human Rights wishes to express deepest sympathies and condolences; and share this moment of grief and mourning following the untimely deaths of National Police Service officers in the West Pokot mudslide tragedy and the flash floods in Chemoe area, in Baringo County in the course of their duties. The Commission shares the loss of the National Police Service officers and it is reaching out to comfort the Inspector General of National Police Service, their Commanders, colleagues in the Service, families, relatives and friends during this time of grief.
Any National Police Service officer who falls while in service to their Nation deserves great honour and with this little act of recognition, the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights is reaching out to express solidarity.
The Kenya National Commission on Human Rights recognises and pays tribute to the hard work of our Service men and women in the security sector, the work they undertake to ensure the safety and security of citizens and their call to duty in safeguarding and preservation of the rule of law in our Country. The National Police Service remains a key stakeholder in the protection and promotion of human rights and thus a strategic partner of the Commission.
In the course of its human rights work in the Rift Valley and the North Rift regions, Kenya National Commission on Human Rights has closely collaborated with National Police Service officers. The Commission is alive to the challenging environment under which the officers work in maintaining peace and security and offering rapid response to the local population.
May the families and all associates of the fallen gallant officers be comforted and find solace as they mourn and reflect on the years shared with their loved ones.
