Police feel aggrieved by recruitment graft reports

13 August 2014, 17:04

Nairobi - The National Police Service Commission NPSC has threatened the Consumer Federation of Kenya COFEK with court action if it fails to provide evidence of corruption in the recruitment of officers.


NPSC has written to the consumer body to provide evidence within seven days.


“Failure to submit this information will make the Commission to invoke section 11(1) (a) of the National Police Service Commission Act, 2011 as explained above,” stated the letter.


“The Commission is concerned that although you have stated in your letter that there is overwhelming evidence that the exercise was marred by high level corruption, you have declined to submit the evidence in your custody to the Commission on the pretext that the Commission cannot investigate itself.”

The letter, signed by the Commission Secretary and Chief Executive Officer, Ojango Omumu, stated that the Commission has given COFEK a week’s notice “to submit the information/ evidence regarding corruption in the recruitment exercise in its possession within seven days.”


The request comes a day after the High Court barred the NPSC from issuing selection letters to the 10 000 recruits based on the Independent Police Oversight Authority’s petition.


The Independent Policing Oversight Authority wants the recruitment nullified following claims it was marred by corruption.


COFEK had earlier written to the NPSC alleging rampant corruption in the recruitment exercise.
