UDA MP now begs RUTO to sack JAPHET KOOME ASAP – He is the most clueless and useless Inspector General of Police Kenya has ever had

Monday, April 15, 2024 - Baringo Woman Representative Florence Jematia has asked President William Ruto to fire Inspector General of Police Japhet Koome for failing to eradicate banditry in the region.

Addressing a congregation over the weekend, the lawmaker accused Koome of sleeping on the job, instead of adopting a hands-on approach in trying to eradicate the menace.

She argued that lives in the region have continued to be lost while the inspector general has continued to remain silent on the matter.

"There is the Inspector General of Police Japhet Koome. People are killed every day yet he is in Nairobi," she lamented.

"You can't be the police boss in Kenya and wait for a report when people are getting killed. Why should you wait for the report instead of going to investigate?" She stated.

Jemaita, who is a member of the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party, as a result, wants the Head of State to relieve the IG of his duties and name his replacement immediately.

She lamented that defending the state was increasingly becoming difficult on the backdrop of deaths in her county.

"We are asking the President to act on it because the task has defeated Koome. We are also in Government and it is hard to defend the government when people are dying," she added.

"You cannot defend the government when my work is to bury people every day. I am not happy to be a leader of people who are suffering. We are asking the President because the buck stops with you."

Jemaita's voice adds to a growing number of leaders across the divide dissatisfied with Koome's performance over insecurity in the region.

On April 1, Senate Majority Leader Aaron Cheruiyot, who is a member of the ruling party, asked him to resign for failing to end the conflict.
