Two Police Officers In Court Contesting Reduction Of Salaries


Two police  officers  have filed an urgent  application  before  the High Court seeking  to  quash to a decision by their employer of reducing their  salaries  from job group  J to job group  F.

The aggrieved  officers  John  Kariuki and Meshack Mutukho, say that the decision  by the Inspector  General  of  Police and the National Police Service to reduce  their  salaries  was made in bad faith.

“It is unreasonable  to reduce  someone’s  salary  without  informing  or consulting  them as they may  have other  commitments  or liabilities  with their  salaries,” reads the court document

The duo through their lawyer Danstan Omari, say that they were employed as graduates and earned salaries under job group J.

They only realised that the same had reduced to job F as revealed in their November 2021 payslips.

They want the court  to prohibit their employer  from  effecting the changes saying  that the reduction  of their  salaries  have a long way  affecting  their  livelihood.

They are asking the court to compel their employer to reinstate their salaries into job group J.

“We seek a compelling  orders  to the Inspector General  of Police  and the National Police Service to continue  paying graduates  officers  recruited in 2013 equivalent  to individuals in group  J as they used to earn  prior  to the decision,” their affidavit  reads in part

Their application will be placed before a judge in judicial review division for direction.
