End rising insecurity, President Ruto tells new police boss Japhet Koome

President William Ruto has asked the police to tackle rising insecurity in the country.

He said the police is well resourced and independent to execute their mandate.

“Muggings, cattle rustling or other cases of insecurity must stop,” he said.

He was speaking at State House, Nairobi when he met the new Inspector General of Police Japhet Koome who took the oath of office on Friday.

The President asked the Inspector General and the National Police Service Commission (NPSC) to work together.

“We want a professional police service; the sticky issues of ethnicity, nepotism or cronyism should no longer exist,” he noted.

The President further said that all promotions must be on merit.

On his part, the NPSC Chairman Eliud Kinuthia said the changes in the service was long-overdue.

“We commit not to fail our country since we have resources to deliver,” said Mr Kinuthia.
