Senator calls for fast-tracking of picking Kimaiyo's replacement

05 December 2014, 22:52

Nairobi - A nominated senator wants the National Police Service Commission (NPSC) to hasten picking of a new inspector general of police to replace David Kimaiyo who retired on Tuesday.

Senator Martha Wangari said that the vacuum need to be filled fast considering the tense security situation in the country.

Speaking in Nakuru town on Wednesday during a youth leaders and young entrepreneurs consultative forum, Wangari said there is an urgent need for an efficient security team given the recent spate of terrorist attacks.

She added that other challenges facing the country’s security, including mass murders in North Eastern, terror threats and youth radicalisation at the Coast necessitate a proper security team in place.

“The police service cannot be without a head at a time when we are faced with many security threats and many criminal and traffic challenges that come with the December festive season,” she said.

The senator further urged the security forces to use intelligence information to avoid attacks such as the two massacres in Mandera where more than 60 people were killed.

“There was intelligence information on the attacks, but the authorities that were supposed to act did nothing to avert the attacks,” she said.
