At least 20 security officers, including a senior police officer, have been arrested across the country for contravening curfew orders in the last two days. 

Another General Service Unit constable who was interdicted over disciplinary issues was also arrested in Ruaraka after they were found ‘enforcing’ curfew orders.

In Nairobi, a Kenya Prisons Service warder and an Administration Police (AP) officer attached to the Critical Infrastructure Unit (CIPU) are some of the officers who were arrested for contravening the orders.

“Some of them were found in drinking joints while others were found in churches. They will not be taken to court but will be dealt with departmentally,” the Nairobi Police Commander Philip Ndolo said yesterday.

Police headquarters also said that the Sega Police Post commander Inspector Hussein Abdulahi was arrested after he turned rowdy when he was found drinking in a bar around 8.30pm.

The officer who is believed to have been drunk drew his pistol forcing the team to retreat. 

Ukwala OCS Chief Inspector Timothy Kwemoi then joined the team and managed to disarm, and then arrested him.

“Inspector Abdulahi attempted to draw his pistol again but the officers acted swiftly and disarmed him.

 During the arrest, he assaulted the OCS and injured him on the head,” a report from the police headquarters reads.

Inspector Abdulahi was also injured on the head and the left and left hand, according to the report.
