Police jobs nominees face roadblock

Nairobi - The Standard reports that following a petition to Parliament for fresh vetting of four nominees over adverse claims, there could be further delay to the appointment of new top police commanders.
If any of four singled out by civil society groups over alleged claims of separate roles in a corruption, tribalism, drug links, defiance of court orders and post-election violence atrocities, are picked by the President and Prime Minister, the relevant House Committee will have to vet them against these serious claims.
This means that there could be fresh battle ahead given the polarised nature of Parliament and the fact that there is a provision in law allowing members of the public and other interested parties to raise their reservations on all or either of the nominees.
