Senator Cleophas Malala of Kakamega will have to employ security to protect him.
Following the derogatory remarks, the National Police Service Commission (NPSC) withdrew the police personnel who were protecting the William Ruto-allied senator.
On Sunday, NPSC Chairperson Eliud Kinuthia issued a statement confirming that the security detail assigned to Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala had been removed.
The police employer stated that it would no longer tolerate situations in which its workers were mocked while performing their duties.
Malala’s bodyguards will not be restored unless Kinuthia publicly apologized to police officers through their employer, according to Kinuthia.
“We are familiar with Senator Malala Yousafzai. You must come to the Police Station and make a thorough apology. We have agreed with the Inspector General of Police, Hilary Mutyambai, that you would be free to go about Kakamega.”
“You can make all those youngsters you claim have dropped out of school in Kakamega your security if you want.” “My cops will not defend a politician who does not respect them,” he said.
The news comes only days after the Senator was caught on camera criticizing police work in the sight of policemen on his campaign route.
Malala said in the video that working in the police force did not require any educational credentials.
He also advised the Service to abandon school standards in the recruiting process in favor of selecting any physically fit kid, comments that enraged the NPS and a segment of Kenyans.
