Nairobi - National Police Service Commission Chairman, Johnstone Kavuludi has announced that the third phase of police vetting will resume on Monday despite the resignation of three of the commission’s panelists.
Kavuludi said the three members, who are either involved in the Nyumba Kumi initiative or the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa in Addis Ababa, have already been replaced for the vetting process to continue as planned.
“These members have already been replaced by other experts namely John Mutonyi, Charles Muthusi, Samuel Karicho, George Ole Kiok and two other nominees who are expected from the Kenya National Commission for Human Rights (KNCHR) and the National Gender and Equality Commission,” said Kavuludi.
“The work we’re carrying on has a lot to do with industrial relations and labour relations,” he added.
He stated that as the vetting work increases, the commission will opt to replace the panel after each vetting phase so as to allow members to carry out their usual duties in their respective work stations.
Kavuludi reiterated that the remaining 166 senior police officers are scheduled to undergo vetting up to March 14, noting that the vetting panel has been split into four groups to accommodate the number.
“These four panels will conduct interviews concurrently and on alternate days at the Commission’s offices in Westlands,” said Kavuludi.
He further said that the fourth phase of vetting “thousands” of Senior Superintendent and Superintendent of Police will take place at the county level.
