President William Ruto has directed the Independent Policing Oversight Authority to come up with a plan that will bring to an end extrajudicial killings.
In a statement on Monday, Ruto said Ipoa is best placed to come up with the plan and hand it to the Ministry of Interior and National Administration.
The directive came shortly after the President met the Ipoa Board at State House Nairobi, where they discussed their mandate, among other things.
"You are uniquely qualified to help us define a mechanism to stop this practice," Ruto said.
