Lawyer Donald Kipkorir has demanded the arrest of Safari for calling himself “ Security Officer” and having Police insignia in his shirt”
On his political ideologies and tweets, Kenyans were divided as per the mentions under the tweet.
Some say police officers should be able to give their political views freely because we are a free society while others say police should stay away from politics because they serve all Kenyans.
There is nothing political in those tweets Wakili. Anyway next time tag KDF, Prison, KWS, KKsecurity, G4s and others for confirmation. They all deal with security .

Thats how kenyan elites view things.Wakili thinks anyone working in police force need to be neutral politically,that means they are not supposed to speak out.Sad!

I don’t find anything wrong here Don. That we have a security officer as a bold advocate of human rights is indeed great. Ile HSC ilipewa Githeri Man irudishwe kwa huyu jamaa

Some agreed with Lawyer Kipkorir
He should obey the rules of his employment

@DonaldBKipkorir, if he truly is an officer, he has breached the code. And it amounts to misconduct for which an officer may be subjected to disciplinary proceedings and penalised as set out under the police act…. If not an officer, the penal code is clear! So relax bro
