NPSC sends three police bosses home, six get jobs back
By Cyrus Ombati | August 10th 2015
NAIROBI: Three senior police officers have been sacked after they were vetted afresh by the National Police Service Commission (NPSC).
The three were among a group of about 15 officers, who were re-vetted in June in Nairobi after they appealed an earlier decision to send them home.
The commission met on Friday and made the decision to send the three home and reinstated 12 others who defended themselves.
A source informed of the development said the affected officers will be officially notified from tomorrow.
"The three failed to convince NPSC they were fit to go back to service and hence have to go. The others defended themselves against the accusations levelled against them and will be reinstated," said an informed official who asked not to be named.
Among those to be reinstated are; Samuel Nyabengi, Eusebius Laibuta, Tito Kilonzi, Roba Kalicha, Devid Birechi and Sharif Abdalla.
They had been sacked last year in May after failing the suitability test but they appealed the decision prompting a fresh exercise.
They were sacked in May 2014 after failing the ongoing police vetting exercise.

NPSC said the reasons for their sacking then included lack of discipline, integrity, violation of human rights, financial impropriety and engagement in criminal activities like bribery, human trafficking, rape and defilement and the smuggling of commodities such as sugar, illicit brews and drugs.
Today, the commission will start vetting officers at the Internal Affairs Unit. After that, the officers will be used to vet others of the ranks of chief inspector and below. Results of the vetting process for more than 1,000 OCPDs, their deputies, CID commanders and other officers of the ranks of senior superintendent and superintendent will be released by the end of the month.
