Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Mataing’i has urged police officers to stop wasting their salaries on alcohol but rather join and start saving with various investments groups in the country.

Speaking during the release of the Annual Report and Financial Statement by the Kenya National Police Deposit Savings in Nairobi, Matiangi said if police fraternity put effort into savings, then most of them will not be involved in petty offences such as bribery and collaboration with bandits.

“I urge every police officer to join savings agencies and invest their finances the right way. We do not want to hear cases of policemen being involved in gun selling in order to put food on the table. If you save, then your life and that of your family will be fine,” he explained.

“If you start saving right from January to December, by the end of the year, you will be far much better.”

Apart from saving, he has also urged police officers to build their homes in order to avoid embarrassing themselves after retirement.

“When you retire, you should be resting in a beautiful home. Set aside money that will help you in your old age. We do not want to hear that a police officer has organizing a harambee somewhere yet he or she was receiving a monthly salary. ”

“While others are busy saving, you are buried in alcoholism. Start saving now for a better future,” said Dr Matiangi.
