Police recruitment to be cancelled in affected areas

17 July 2014, 18:15 William Korir

Nairobi - Police recruitment will be cancelled in affected areas,  the National Police Service Commision NPSC has said.

NPSC chairman Johnstone Kavuludi has urged those with complaints to forward them to his commission and where there are valid claims, there will be nullification.

He urged Kenyans to send in the complaints within the next seven days to seek justice in affected areas.

" We welcome all bodies or persons that have any information of wrong doing on the part of the NPSC or our officers for investigation, a statement from the NPSC read.

Kavuludi said there will be ramifications for those caught out having any involvement in wrongdoing, saying it was up to officers to ensure the name of the police service is held in good light.

" The commission has been carrying out a monitoring and evaluation of the exercise to establish whether the guidelines were followed. Action will be taken against those who will be found culpable and this includes administrative, with the view to prosecuting any persons that were engaged in any vices that will be regarded as breaking the law.

There have been several complaints from MPs, and members of the public as regards the process, with some claiming it is has been abused.

Some have even called on the whole process to be revoked.

Kavuludi though insisted that there would only be changes made where there was clear evidence of malpractice.

" We will insist that the evidence produced be damning and must be clear and without any doubt in order to ensure the cases are pursued.

The NPSC is seeking to recruit 10,000 police officers to help reduce the workload on an already overburdened workforce and enhance security in the country following heightened levels of thuggery and terrorism.
