The National Police Service Commission has transferred former DCI boss George Kinoti to the Public Service Commission.
This has been announced through a tweet by the commission.
“The National Police Service Commission has approved the transfer of services for Mr George Kinoti, CBS, former Director, Directorate of Criminal Investigation, from the National Police Service Commission to Public Service Commission with remuneration and privileges personal to himself, with effect from 27th September 2022 until attainment of mandatory retirement age,” read the tweet.
“The gross monthly salary and benefits attached to the position will be as determined by the Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) vide Kenya Gazette No.8792 of July 27, 2022,” said the NPSC in their job advertisement.
According to the notice, a DCI chief earns a basic salary of Sh372,750, a House Allowance of Sh100,000 and a salary market adjustment of Sh148,400, bringing the total gross monthly salary to Sh621,250.
Kinoti was appointed the Director of Criminal Investigations in January 2018 during President Uhuru Kenyatta’s second term.
After four years at the helm of the investigative agency, he exited under a cloud of disapproval by President William Ruto, who accused him of weaponising the war on graft and other crimes, especially during the run-up to the August 9, 2022 General Election.
Dr. Ruto accused Kinoti of targeting leaders who were affiliated with him but opposed to Raila Odinga’s presidential bid.
