, NAIROBI, Kenya, July 3 – The National Police Service Commission has cleared nine senior officers whose vetting results had been withheld pending further investigations.
The commission’s chairman Johnstone Kavuludi says the three senior assistant commissioners and six assistant commissioners were interviewed afresh and found fit to continue serving.
The nine include former police spokesman Erick Kiraithe who is currently seconded to the Kenya Airports Authority as the Security Manager.
The other officers are Washington Ajuoga, Thomas Baraza, Vitalis Okumu, David Rono, David Cheruiyot, Pius Mureithi, Patrick Ndunda and Francis Kirathe.
The commission commenced the process in December last year with the vetting of 166 senior assistant commissioners of police and assistant commissioners of police in March 2014.
The conclusion of the interviews brings the total number of officers vetted so far to 196.
