IPOA issues new warning amid chaos, police shooting claims

There are reports that police are shooting innocent people in Kibera and Kisumu

tension has been running high in Kisumu's Obuga and Kondele estates and Nairobi's Kibera and Mathare slums and once again the police have been put on the spot for using excess force to suppress the riots.

The Independent Policing and Oversight Authority, IPOA has issued a lethally stun warning to the police who are shooting and allegedly killing innocent people.

In a statement issued Saturday, through Twitter, IPOA's CEO Dr Joel Mabonga has issued numbers through which oppressed people could call through.

"As per an earlier statement, IPOA is monitoring police conduct at the moment. Officers found culpable of misconduct will be held liable," reads the tweet.

Earlier, the authority had its over 105 officers dispatched across the country to  monitor the situation and report back in real time.

Reports indicate that the media has been bared from accessing the alleged volatile Kibera slum as police have been lobbying teargas to disperse the media.

Both local media and international media are reporting conflicting stories about the state of security in the Raila Odinga's stringholds.

Acting Interior CS Dr Fred Matiang'i is set to address the media later today.
