Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo.
BY SAM ALFAN.
High court has quashed the decision by the Inspector General of Police directing the impounding of vehicles with tinted windows.
Justice George Odunga said the decision was made without clear constitutional provisions and had far reaching consequence to the motor vehicles users.
The judge said the IGP has no such power to come up the regulations, saying the decision although meant cub the increasing insecurity but must be applied as provided for in the constitution
He said the directive to impound the vehicles as ordered by the inspector general violates the rights vehicles owners.
The applicant Akitch Okola through the law firm of Rachier and Amollo advocates moved to court seeking orders to halt the directives, saying the Inspector general of police acted irrationally.
The directive is based on a fundamental error in which he purported to amend a subsidiary legislation.
The judge allowed the application by a litigant and ordered the respondent to pay costs to the applicant.
