Gachagua’s Radical Scheme to Alter Police

Published on

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua’s comments on Thursday, September 15 hint at impending operational changes to the National Police Service – NPS.

In his remarks at the Mombasa meeting of the Council of Governors (CoG), Gachagua said that the government is aware of the harassment governors and other government employees face at the hands of detectives.

“We are aware of the harassment and intimidation that governors undergo through state agencies. The level of extortion by detectives pretending to be fighting graft, whereas they were extorting money. We assure you this is a thing of the past,” he stated.

In his opinion, the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) had fostered a toxic atmosphere that was impeding the provision of quality services to Kenyans.

“We have told DCI to go back to Kiambu road, they have no business in government offices hovering all over and creating a toxic environment. They cannot send a junior police officer to harass an elected governor,” Gachagua stated.
