Judge orders dialogue in Police recruitment saga

21 August 2014, 14:31 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - A High Court judge has ordered dialogue in a bid to solve the crisis created by the controversial police recruitment drive.

Justice Isaac Lenaola has urged the National Police Service Commission NPSC and the Independent Police Oversight Authority IPOA to hold talks and try solve the current problems.

This followed a case filed by a number of recruits, whose recruitment to the police service has been put on hold after investigations showed that their centers had been implicated in corruption.

The 50 recruits' appointment letters have been revoked by the NPSC.

" I urge the parties involved to seek dialogue in solving this matter since there is grounds for negotiation, instead of dragging it in a court battle, Lenaola said.

" If there is no agreement at the end of the day, we will then proceed to a full case and hearing, he added.

1,215 of the 10,000 recruits have been put on hold after it was determined that their recruitment was irregular.

They constituted 36 centers out of the 289 overall recruitment centers.

The IPOA has insisted that it wants the whole recruitment process shelved and a new one done afresh to ensure credibility.

NPSC though, feels that starting the process again is not on the cards and that the whole process was not compromised.

IPOA has thus gone to court seeking the overall revocation of the process, which has been criticized in several quarters including parliament, which has already ordered that the appointment letters for the recruits not be handed out.
