The newly graduated GSU recruits who were on Wednesday this week captured in a viral video making questionable threats after their pass out, will not be stationed until investigations into the incident are concluded.


According to National Police Service (NPS) Spokesperson Bruno Shioso, the graduands are currently being held at the National Police College Embakasi B Campus in Nairobi where the graduation was hosted while the rest of the officers have since been deployed to their respective stations.  

“Of course, we understand these are young officers who are full of excitement for their 1st day of service. It was a big day also in terms of the chief guest present but there must be a review of what happened,” police spokesman Shioso told the Daily Nation.

He added: “We can’t make assumptions. We are also seeking to establish their motivation to join the service because they must fit the requirements of a modern-day service.”

The police spokesperson said investigations will help determine the exact number of officers depicted in the video before disciplinary action against them is enforced.  

The graduands, who were part of a cohort of 2,502 new officers incorporated into the police service, were captured on video shouting that they “are finally out” and they are the “bad squad in red beret,” as they flashed the finger gun gesture while at it.

In a statement released on Wednesday evening, the National Police Service condemned the actions of the officers saying it was not a representation of the police service that they were coming into.

“We wish to clarify and assure the public that the behavior portrayed in the clip is not acceptable and does not reflect the values of the GSU, KPS, and the NPS,” read the statement.
