I would like to address a new trend with the constitutional office holders, and in this case, Inspector General of Police (IGP) Hillary Mutyambai.
Currently, businesses are picking up since COVID-19 numbers are reducing every day, and like any other industry, there is an issue of debtors, people who have defaulted in their loans from banks and land that was used as collateral and has been sold off in an auction. All these needs the services of auctioneers for the repossession and evictions.
Since covid-19 pandemic, we have seen blatant impunity from the so called Constitutional Office holders, coming up with their own ideas and laws that are not in line with the Supreme Law of Kenya.
Inspector General of Police has deferred all court orders Issued by Kenyan Courts for eviction and repossession of goods, during this pandemic era. My big question to Mr. Mutyambai is, how will the banks deal with the loan defaults? will their customer still retain the loan and also the collateral, who advices you Mr. IGP? Should we obey court order or IGPs order?
This is to advice all loan defaulters, to seat and relax cause the institution that is mandated to provide security to the auctioneers for repossession and eviction, is currently on holiday or recess courtesy of IG Mutyambai.
One citizen should move to court or peoples Wakili Mr. Okiyah Omtata and cite Mr Mutyambai with contempt of court, because clearly, it seems the interior ministry is coming up with their own laws to govern this country.
We should all remind them that, these offices are held on behalf of the public and they draw their salary from public coffers. Power is temporary.
Are these just another set of his new guidelines for the poor?
Law Society of Kenya (LSK) with their current able President Nelson Havi should kindly intervene and have these issues of impunity rectified as soon as possible.
I have faith in President Havi and I hope this letter will reach his good office.
Let Mutyambai obey court orders and if he has any issue, he should just challenge same in a court of law.
