Kavuludi asks Uhuru to spearhead police accommodation

15 May 2014, 10:15 Joseph Njung’eh

Nairobi - The National Police Service Commission (NPSC) chairman, Johnston Kavuludi on Wednesday asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to spearhead the project of giving police officers good and decent accommodation.

Speaking in Nyeri during his two-day tour, Kavuludi noted that for a long time, police have been living in deplorable conditions despite working in hard circumstances.

He said one of the NPSC roles is to ensure that police get decent houses, noting that some officers live in pre-colonial tin unit huts.

“We are looking on how the government can improve police officers’ welfare because they want to live in conducive and healthy conditions. Most of them are living in tin unit huts that can be carried away by wind or floods,” said Kavuludi reiteratin.

He announced that police vetting exercise in Nyeri region will kick off in two weeks' time.

He stated that the exercise is not meant to remove some officers from service but to assess their suitability and competence.

He added that the exercise is also aimed at determining the officer’s fitness, facilitate promotions and identify those with special skills that need to be transferred to other areas of command.

He asked public not to provide the commission with false or misleading information but instead provide accurate information that can assist with the exercise.

The vetting exercise will chiefly target Superintendent of Police (SP) officers and Senior Superintendents of Police (SSP).
