    10 finalists to replace ex-DCI director Kinoti

    Published on

    In order to choose the future Director General of the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI), ten individuals were chosen for in-depth interviews.

    From a pool of 253 people that applied to the National Police Service Commission, these individuals were selected.

    Those considered include Homabay County Police Commander Esther Seroney, as well as the directors of the Internal Affairs Unit (Mohamed Amin) and the Department of Criminal Investigations (Bernard Barasa and Eliud Lagat), as well as the principal assistant to the Inspector General of Police (Munga Nyale).

    David Birech, director of reforms at police headquarters, Jonyo Wiso, head of investigations at insurance fraud, Nicholas Kamwende, director of planning at DCI, Paul Ndambuki, formerly regional Coast police commander, and Dr. Wanderi Mwangi, head of DCI Railways, were also on the list of finalists released on Saturday, October 8.

    Thursday, after the interviews, three candidates will be submitted to the president for consideration as the successor to Kinoti.

    A large number of hopefuls, among others, were eliminated. Many officers and civilians applied, and only a select few were ultimately chosen for interviews.

    All applicants had to be degree-holding professionals with at least ten years of relevant experience and shown expertise in criminal investigations.

    The job became open when President William Ruto announced Kinoti’s departure on September 27.
