Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has sacked Deputy Inspector General DIG of Police Grace Kaindi.
President Kenyatta has now nominated GSU Commandant Joel Kitili as the new acting Deputy Inspector General of Police.
Kitili takes over from Kaindi who has been appointed as an ambassador.
" This nomination will take place with immediate effect, and until the substantive process of appointing the next DIG takes place," Uhuru said.
" His appointment will ensure smooth transition in the National Police Service," he added.
Kaindi is said to have been on the end of a number of complaints about her conduct and leadership skills and has been accused of being regressive and against reforms in the police service.
Her sacking follows that of the former IG David Kimaiyo, who is now the Chairman of the Kenya Airports Authority KAA.
