Former Director of Criminal Investigation George Kinoti’s services have been transferred from the National Police Service Commission (NPSC) to the Public Service Commission (PSC).
In a statement released on Thursday, October 6th, NPSC explained that Kinoti, like all other civil servants, will be paid through the PSC.
“The National Police Service Commission has approved the transfer of services for George Kinoti, CBS, former Director, Directorate of Criminal Investigation, from the National Police Service Commission to the Public Service Commission with remuneration and privileges personal to himself, with effect from September 27, 2022, until attainment of mandatory retirement age,” NPSC stated.
Up until he hits retirement age, Kinoti can apparently be transferred to any other government entity by PSC.
The transfer follows his resignation on September 27, which was made public by President William Ruto paving the way for the appointment of his replacement.
“I have also received the resignation of DCI Kinoti and directed the national police service to proceed with advertising that position. Meanwhile, they should get somebody to act in that position,” Ruto stated.
On Friday, September 30, Kinoti passed the reins of power to acting DCI boss Hamisi Salim Massa as the search for his permanent replacement got underway.
While leaving office, Kinoti cited among his accomplishments the hiring of over 400 detectives to work in a variety of investigative sectors in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, China, India, Russia, and South Africa.
“Under this prestigious program, 42 detectives drawn from the Anti Terrorism Police Unit (ATPU) underwent a 12-week intensive counterterrorism training at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia, where I also joined the detectives to inspire them and make Kenya proud,” he added.
