Nairobi - 33 senior officers from the police service have been sacked after they were found unfit to serve; this is according to National Police Service Commission chairman Johnston Kavuludi.
Kavuludi is in Rift valley to oversee the vetting of more than 300 traffic police officers stationed in various parts of the of the region in a bid to weed out undesirable characters from the service.
A total of 1,566 police officers have been vetted so far, with only one senior officer opting not to go through vetting and proceeding on retirement but the rest have accepted to be vetted by the commission
The commission has noted that no amount of threats or intimidation will stop them from doing their work even as a number of junior officers said they were been victimized for sending money they collect when on duty to their senior officers.
Kavuludi has been accompanied by Commissioners Ronald Musengi, Murshid Mohamed and Mary Owuor, a retired police officer who will oversee the two week vetting process in Rift valley region.
