A new report on police reforms has urged Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo to speedily detail security measures to be put in place during the March 4 elections. In the report, Amnesty International expressed concern that a month before the General Election, Mr Kimaiyo has not revealed a clear plan on policing the elections and preventing violence. Amnesty has warned against the deployment of Kenya Defence Forces to keep or restore security during election unless “absolutely necessary” and only for a limited and specified duration, under a clear command, and with respect for international human rights law, especially regarding the use of force and accountability for human rights violations.
