Overisight team seeks nullification of Police recruitment process

05 August 2014, 17:15 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The Independent Police Oversight Authority, IPOA has filed a suit seeking nullification of the 10,000 strong police recruitment over graft allegations.

Chairman Macharia Njeru said the exercise was marred with corruption, as reported by observers added to complaints received from members of the public.

" It was marred by maleficent irregularities, was conducted in a manner that was not in compliance with the Constitution and hence led to the great hue and cry from members of the public and aggrieved participants,” he said.

He says that a move by the National Police Service Commission NPSC to cancel results of certain centres was ill judged and a cover up for the grand scale of corruption that has affected the whole process.

" We refuse efforts to downscale the level of corruption in the process and urge that there be full cancellation of the recruitment drive to allow a fresh process begin, he added.

The NPSC is set to reveal its report on the whole process Wednesday.

Chairman Johnstone Kavuludi insisted that the audit process would be open and fair and denied accusations that it was being done to save face for the force.

" Where we do find evidence to show that the process was affected by corruption, we will take action, he said.

The recruitment process has been put on hold, with the 10,000 potential officers stopped from joining training camp until the audit process is complete.
