Kiprotich is a former commander of defunct Flying Squad and was moved to Coast three years ago.
Mugera is a long-serving police commander having served in Kiambu, Kericho and Kilifi.
This came as new Nairobi police boss Rashid Yakub who has been in Mombasa in the same capacity reported to office on Monday.
He handed over to outgoing boss Philip Ndolo who was moved to Kiganjo police training college as the deputy commandant to replace Gabriel Musau who was named the new Coast regional police boss.
Musau once worked in Mombasa as the head of operations and many feel his transfer will be a boost.
He worked as a personal assistant to at least three commissioners of police for long.
Ndolo is a long-serving police commander who served in North Eastern and was once the director of police operations.
Yakub worked as western regional police commander since 2019 before he was moved to the coast in the same capacity.
Police headquarters said the changes were normal and aimed at boosting police operations.
