Kavuludi team threatened over police vetting exercise

23 January 2014, 15:18

Nairobi - Members of the National Police Service Commission (NPSC) carrying out the vetting process of top police officers have allegedly been sent death threats, according to the Standard.

Police say they are investigating the origin of a warning letter that was sent by post and delivered to the commission’s Chairman, Johnston Kavuludi and Commissioner Mohamed Murshid by a messenger on Tuesday.

The commissioners are now asking for the enhancement of their security over the issue.

In August last year, a freshly chopped human head and two hands were found abandoned at the NPSC offices in Nairobi.

The blood stained human body parts were in box that was wrapped in a yellow polythene bag and dropped on a flower bed outside the offices.

It contained a note reading “Kavuludi you are next,” which detectives described as a death threat to Kavuludi, who had been fighting for reforms in the Kenya police service.

Kavuludi's team has already sent three top police officers home after completion of the first phase of the vetting process. The report for the second phase is yet to be released.
