The national Police Service take great exception to untruthful allegations made by some NASA politicians to the effect that the Police are responsible for killing 100 persons and hiding the corpses in body bags.

Equally, lacking in truth is the allegation made by the Kenya National Human Rights Commission that we are responsible for 24 deaths.

These allegations are unfounded and have no basis in fact and are clearly aimed at escalating tension in the country.

In the past 2 days, we are aware of six (6) fatalities, in which criminals armed and acting with deadly intent attacked Police officers attempting to effect arrest, resulting in fatal neutralisation of the attackers.

In Nairobi’s, Ruaraka, two (2) criminals were shot dead while breaking into a supermarket at Kasabuni. When challenged to surrender, they attacked the law enforcement officers with machetes with an intent to harm them.

The third one was in Starehe, Nairobi where there was a group of 25 people armed with assorted crude weapons breaking into private houses and who menacingly challenged and charged at Police officers.

The fourth and fifth (2) criminals were fatally neutralised after a gang of six broke into a shop in Kariobangi, Nairobi. As Police pursued them, they fired at the Police officers who fired back in defense.

The sixth fatality occurred in Kisumu when a criminal was shot after a large riotous mob blocked Dago – Kiboswa road and barricaded it with bonfires and stones and attacked motorists and pedestrians. The Police Officers attempting to effect arrest were also attacked.

We are aware of a very sad and unfortunate incident in which a 9 year old girl was shot dead while in their house in Mathare Area 2, by unknown persons.
