National Police Service Commission (NPSC) has advertised the position of Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) following the resignation of George Kinoti.
In an advertisement on Thursday, September 29, the commission has given those interested in the position until October 6 to submit their applications.
"Pursuant to section 30 as read together with Sections 29 and 30 of the NPS Act No.11A of 2011 Revised (2017), the Commission is mandated to recommend to the President persons for appointment as Director of Criminal Investigations.
"Subsequently, the Commission invites applications from suitably qualified persons who wish to be considered for the position of Director of Criminal Investigations," NPSC said.
Commission lists requirements
The person allowed to apply for the position must be a citizen of Kenya, holds a degree from a University recognized in Kenya, and has had at least 10 years’ proven experience at the management level of a public institution among other requirements.
Applicants must also produce clearance from Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC), Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA), Higher Education Loans Board (HELB), Credit Reference Bureau (CRB), and a police clearance certificate from DCI.
"Each application should be accompanied by a detailed curriculum vita, copies of relevant academic and professional testimonials, and other relevant supporting documents. Scanned copies of these documents must accompany an online application.
"All applications should be clearly marked 'Application for the position of Director of Criminal Investigations'," the commission added.
The application procedure is available on the commission's website.
While announcing his Cabinet nominees on Tuesday, September 27, President William Ruto said Kinoti had opted to resign from his position at DCI.
“The commission will get someone to act in that position (DCI) for now as we wait for the other processes to fill the position,” Ruto said.
At the same time, Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai proceeded on his terminal leave six months before his term at the helm of the police service elapsed.
"After discussing with Mutyambai, I have accepted his terminal leave.
"I have transmitted the same to the National Police Service to proceed with advertising that position," Ruto said.
