A set for Sh4,000: Shock of police uniform on sale

What you need to know:

  • Fearing for their jobs, and with the uniform not available, the officers were referred by colleagues to various tailors in the central business district, Huruma and Kawangware.
  • Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i said the country would no longer import police uniform.

  • In February this year, Interior Principal Secretary Dr Karanja Kibicho said it would take the government at least three years to have all police officers in the new uniform.

Today I am supposed to visit a dingy tailoring shop in Huruma, in Nairobi’s Eastlands, to pick up my police uniform, which I fitted earlier in the week.
