Police Officer In Viral TikTok Video Facing Disciplinary Action For ‘Reckless’ Remarks

The National Police Service (NPS) has reacted to a now-viral TikTok video allegedly of one of its officers making what it terms as ‘misleading and reckless’ remarks amid the ongoing opposition-led anti-government protests.

The said officer, in the undated video, had gone live on the social networking application and was reading some of the comments from his followers, most of which he said read; “Ruto must go.”

NPS, in a statement released on Wednesday, termed the officer’s attire in the video as improper and his remarks as reckless and not a representation of values espoused by the police service.

The State agency hence called out the officer, stating that he will be subjected to disciplinary action after a careful review of his remarks by an internal team.

“The attention of the National Police Service is drawn to a video clip circulating on social media, depicting an improperly dressed ‘Police Officer’ making misleading and reckless remarks,” read the statement.

“As a Disciplined Service, we wish to clarify and assure the public that the behaviour portrayed in the clip is not only unacceptable but also doesn’t reflect the values of NPS.”

NPS further added: “The remarks are therefore regrettable and stand condemned in the strongest terms possible, even as we embark on an internal review with a view of preferring appropriate disciplinary action.”
