Police audit on recruitment to be released next week

Nairobi - The National Police Service Commision NPSC will release an audit into the controversial recruitment drive next week.
The report was expected released this week but the process has been delayed as new angles for investigation have emerged.
Chairman Johnstone Kavuludi said in a statement Friday that he expects the report to highlight the issues faced during the recruitment drive.
" The Inter-Agency Working Group handed over its findings to the Joint Committee comprising the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission, the National Intelligence Service, the Ministry of Interior and Co-ordination, the Directorate of Criminal Investigations and the National Police Service Commission on Monday, August 4, 2014, the statement read in part.
Upon receipt of the report, there were some parts missing that had to be returned to the audit team and another report has finally been handed in Friday.
" Next week will see the final report on the audit released, Kavuludi added.
The process, which saw 10,000 police officers recruited has been criticized by many for the high levels of graft involved.
The process has thus far been put on hold pending a parliamentary investigation into it.
The independent National Police Oversight Commision NPOA has called for a fresh process to be started, terming the just ended process as a sham and not to be trusted.
Kavuludi had earlier said that depending on the gravity of the situation, the process might be cancelled in affected areas.
