Nairobi - The National Police Service Commission was not consulted over the major police bosses reshuffle that took place Thursday.
Police headquarters Thursday moved 55 senior officers in a move aimed at enhancing the current security situation in the country.
The biggest casualty was traffic commandant Samuel Kimaru who was also moved in the reshuffle.
But according to Kavuludi, his commission was not consulted on the reshuffle as is supposed to be by law.
He confirmed that he is out of the country and that the changes announced by vigilance house are alien to him.
" We were not consulted. I have heard of the reports through the media, he told News24 on phone.
Kavuludi did not however seek to make anything much of the matter saying he would brief the media on his return to the country.
" I will not comment for now, but we should have been told and consulted in advance, he added.
The revelation will likely lift tension between the inspector general of police David Kimaiyo and Kavuludi, which is at an all time high over Kavuludi's role in the ongoing police vetting.
The two are said not to meet eye to eye and have on several occasions argued, despite efforts from the two to downplay the matter.
