New police uniforms will be locally made, CS Matiang’i
“The new police uniforms will be procured and made locally,” says the Cabinet Secretary for Interior and Coordination of National Government, Dr. Fred Matiang’i.
The Government has reiterated that the new police uniforms will be procured and made locally in line with the police reforms that were launched in the presence of H.E President Uhuru Kenyatta on 13th September 2018.
Speaking at the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) CS Dr. Matiang’i, said that the Government will not succumb to any pressure from any individual or organization to import the material or readily made uniforms.
“Buy Kenya, build Kenya. We have people who can work here in Kenya. We as the government need to provide employment to our people and importing such things is going against it,” he said.

The CS added that the Permanent Secretary in the Interior Ministry, Dr. (Eng) Karanja Kibicho, was recently on a tour to inspect the progress of the new uniforms and the report he brought back was positive.
The CS spoke while meeting with the National Assembly’s Parliamentary Caucus on the transport sector reforms. Together with his counterpart from the Transport, Infrastructure, Housing and Urban Development Ministry, James Macharia, they agreed to extend the deadline on the implementation of reforms in the boda-boda sector by four months from 1st February 2019 to 1st May 2019.
Dr. Matiang’i also said that they shall appoint two more members to the Task Force on Policy, Legal and Administrative Reforms and before the 1st of May deadline, convene a national convention with boda-boda representatives, where the Task Force will be expected to present their report.
The CS said the implementation of the Michuki Rules, which commenced on 12 November 2018, was bearing fruit. He added that the operation to establish a safe public transport system was still on and will not stop anytime soon especially since Kenyans are nearing the festive season.
He directed all concerned security and transport agencies to diligently conduct their duty without fear or favor.
The CS also urged everyone to follow the law so that the Government can continue executing its mandate of serving and protecting Kenyans.
Moreover, he asked the leaders who were present to desist from inciting people against police officers as has been happening recently.
Also present at the meeting was the PS in the Transport Ministry, Esther Koimett, Inspector General, Joseph Boinett and the Director-General, NTSA Francis Meja.
