A UN investigator has called for the removal of Kenya’s police commissioner and attorney general over a wave of alleged extrajudicial killings.
Philip Alston said: “Kenyan police are a law unto themselves. They kill often, with impunity.”
His remark came as video emerged of an officer saying the police commissioner had ordered the killing of suspects.
The government rejected the report’s finding and said it appeared to have been issued in bad faith.
Mr. Alson has been on a 10-day visit to probe claims of arbitrary killings amid violence after the December 2007 polls.
The UN rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary and arbitrary executions said on Wednesday that police commissioner Maj Gen Hussein Ali should be sacked and also urged Attorney General Amos Wako to quit.
