David Kimaiyo’s replacement to be known in February
The next Inspector General of Police is expected to officially take office by end of February next year, National Police Service Commission chairman Johnston Kavuludi said yesterday. Kavuludi said the successor to David Kimaiyo, who resigned yesterday, will be known after a three-month process of advertisement and interviews.
Kavuludi said yesterday for the moment, the President is expected to appoint one of the two deputy Inspector Generals to run the office in an acting capacity for a period not 90 days.
The two are Grace Kaindi, who is currently in charge of operations, and Samuel Arachi, who is in charge of Administration Police. “According to the NPS Act, the President on recommendation of the Commission, may appoint one of the two deputies to act as Inspector General for a period not exceeding three months,” he said.
