Police form team to probe controversial recruitment drive

22 July 2014, 18:29 John Wafula

Nairobi - A team has been formed by the National Police Service Commision NPSC to probe the controversial recruitment drive held last week.

The team, led by Commissioner Murshid Mohammed will be tasked with taking in complaints from Kenyans over the process.

This follows pressure from several quarters to have the whole process cancelled due to what was described as corruption, favouritism and nepotism.

NPSC chairman Johnstone Kavuludi while presenting the new committee, said that the process aims to return Kenyans' confidence in the process and if reason is available, ensure the process is repeated in some areas.

" A multi-agency working group comprising above-mentioned parties has been formed. It will collect, collate and analyze all complaints and make recommendations to the commission for further action.

Kavuludi says he expects a report within seven days of the committee kicking off duty.
" A comprehensive audit report will then be issued. We wish to assure the citizens of Kenya that together we have undertaken a collaborative approach to undertake a comprehensive audit of the complaints received and will not hesitate to take stern action on anybody found culpable and where necessary such action shall include nullification of the exercise at the affected centres, he added.

The process has already been ridiculed by members of government as well as the CORD coalition who have called on the whole process to be cancelled, a recommendation which Kavuludi says is impossible.

" It cannot be redone. Unless we have a report that says that all centres had problems which we will see but I find difficult to fathom, he added.

CORD has called on the process to be re-done and devolved to County level.
