Kimaiyo to appeal ruling on County appointments

28 March 2014, 13:57 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo will appeal a decision by the High Court to declare his appointment of 47 county commanders illegal.

Kimaiyo was censured by Justice George Odunga Thursday, over the appointment of the police commanders in 2013.

Justice George Odunga ruled that the appointments by the police boss are a mandate of the National Police service Commission and not the Inspector General of Police.

"Any office in the national police service or any appointment, transfers or promotion of an officer can only be done by and in full authorization of the national police service commission NPSC, Justice Odunga said. 

However, he said that there was no grounds for Kimaiyo's removal from office for the appointments as the move was meant to fill a vacuum which existed in the police force.

But Kimaiyo says that he will consult the Attorney General over the ruling and that if there is any justification, an appeal will be launched in quick-time.

" We are in consultation with the Attorney General over the ruling and he has been presented with the ruling as it is. On his advice, we will see whether an appeal is feasible, but yes, we are looking to appeal the ruling, he said.

Kimaiyo argues that as the police boss, he has power to transfer, remove or retain police officers upon consultation.
