Uhuru fell for Boinett's Impressive CV

31 December 2014, 20:22 William Korir

Nairobi - The new Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinett has a CV that rivals the best of them in the police service.

Boinett has been named the new IG, replacing the retired David Kimaiyo who quit last month following pressure from the public over rising insecurity.

Kipchirchir Boinett, a 52-year-old brilliant intelligence officer, was today nominated for the position of Inspector-General of Police by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Boinett joined the Kenya Police Force in 1984 as a cadet Inspector and exhibited resilience, commitment and devotion that saw him rise through the ranks to the position of Senior Superintendent of Police. He joined the intelligence service in 1998.

The hardworking officer has impressive academic qualifications on security, public management and leadership. He holds two masters degrees in security policy and diplomatic studies. Boinett also has a degree in international studies and diplomacy.

Having worked at Kenya Airways on secondment in Harare, Zimbabwe, and Rome, Boinett is an accomplished officer with in-depth experience in security drawn from his training and more than 30 years of experience spanning national, continental and international levels.
