Mutua, who visited Chief Inspector Maina in the hospital, pledged KSh1 million towards his recovery, acknowledging the sacrifices officers make in maintaining public order.

The injured officer is attached to the the Administration Police, Rapid Deployment Unit (RDU).

“Out of the protests that have happened, two police officers are in hospital and not a single demonstrator was injured. Our police have shown their restraint, they have looked and seen these are children who are being used and have not done anything,” Th CS said.

Mutua, however, is yet to comment on the death of Rex Masai, a civilian fatally shot by a police officer during the Finance Bill Protests.

His silence begs the question: is the government only concerned with the executive arm while overlooking its citizens, who elected them to power?
