Police face the sack as vetting exercise begins

26 November 2013, 10:18

Nairobi - The National Police Service Commission (NPSC) said the long-awaited police vetting exercise would enable the force regain its credibility.

Interior Cabinet Secretary, Joseph Ole Lenku, launched the programme that kicked off on Monday with police seniors insisting that officers that did not meet the vetting team’s expectations would be relieved of their duties.

Lenku further added that officers who would not meet the vetting team standards would have to leave the force although they would be remunerated.

“We look forward to the public participation by giving us information on the officers whom we are vetting. We also want to reiterate our commitment that the process is going to be fair, accountable and ensure those who do not meet the necessary threshold are gotten out of the service and those officers who have diligently served this country have nothing to worry,” added Lenku during an event that senior police officials attended.

More than 2,000 officers are expected to have undergone the vetting process by mid next year.

Police are ranked among the most corrupt arms of government locally. It is argued that members of the force are poorly-paid, making them susceptible to corruption and other crimes. Extortion and bribery are commonplace.
