- In the photos posted via the NPS Twitter handle, the police boss is seen posing in the Persian-blue shirt/blouse, trousers and beret uniform while seated behind his desk.
The National Police Service (NPS) on Tuesday posted photos of Inspector General Joseph Boinnet in the new police uniform for the General Duty officers and Kenyans online had something to say as usual.
In the photos posted via the NPS Twitter handle, the police boss is seen posing in the Persian-blue shirt/blouse, trousers and beret uniform while seated behind his desk.
Kenyans on Twitter took to the comment section of the post with their opinions; with most making fun of the police boss’s new look.

Blue is beautiful. And the IG is on point. Looking good. Question is will the monkey's in the new forest change or they will still be the same monkeys we know here!?

While announcing the unveiling of the new uniforms, among a raft of other changes in the police service, in September this year, President Kenyatta said the change from Navy blue and jungle green colours was to make police “more visible”.
