The CS was speaking at the Kenya Police Training College in Kiganjo, where he floated the policy as a remedy for rising murders among married police offices.

We will have a system like the Kenya Defence Forces which prohibits soldiers from getting into intimate relationships with colleagues. Moving forward, it will be illegal for a police officer to date or get married to a fellow officer,” CS Matiang'i.

The order was received with outrage among Kenyans, majority of them accusing the CS of overstepping.
