Dr. Resila Atieno Onyango has been named the National Police Service spokesperson, taking over from Bruno Shioso who has been promoted to Commandant of the National Police Training Campus in Kiganjo.

Resila becomes the second woman to ascend to the spokesperson position at the Police Service after Zipporah Mboroki who served in 2014.

Before her promotion, Resila – a Senior Superintendent, obtained a Doctorate degree from the University of Pennsylvania, USA in 2021 and was serving as the Deputy Director of Planning at the Office of the Inspector General of Police.

Also affected in the changes is Central Regional Police Commander Manaseh Musyoka who has been moved to Nairobi region in the same capacity, replacing James Mugera who has since retired from the service.
