Nairobi - Three candidates for the post of CID chief on Thursday made the case for the tapping of phones to speed up criminal investigations, saying though illegal, it was effective.
According to Daily Nation, Francis Omondi Okonya, Ndegwa Muhoro, and Mathew Kabetu told the National Police Service Commission that some cases, such as abductions, would force the police to monitor communication especially where the kidnappers are demanding ransom.
Muhoro, the current top detective, and Kabetu, a former Anti-Terrorism Police Unit boss, were also interviewed as the search for the next CID chief came to an end.
