New DCI Amin takes over declares no more monkey business, proposes major reforms

The new DCI Director Mr Amin Mohammed Ibrahim, has called on detectives to be forthright in their investigations and serve Kenyans without prejudice, in strict conformity to the law.

The DCI chief who was sworn into office this morning got straight into business, by meeting directors of various departments and section heads based at DCI headquarters.

Mr Amin who expressed his delight at being back to where he belonged, noted that whereas a majority of Kenyans were happy with the work done by detectives so far, a few rotten eggs existed in the agency and there was need to deal with them within the established disciplinary mechanisms.

The DCI Chief who committed to start his tour of duty with a clean slate, called on detectives to execute their duties with integrity while upholding professionalism and confidentiality.

“We must deliver on our mandate to Kenyans and practices such as sitting on cases to defeat justice will be a thing of the past. I will particulaly have no sympathy for officers engaged in partial investigations and malicious prosecution of individuals,” noted Mr Amin.

The top detective urged the senior officers to ensure that detectives working under them were disciplined and conducted themselves in a manner that inspired public confidence.

”The Service Standing Orders (SSO) are very clear on the conduct of police officers and you are urged to strictly operate within the confines of the SSO while observing the chain of command,” said the director.

While urging the officers to work as a family in delivering a safe and secure environment for Kenyans, Mr Amin committed to ensure that investigations were audited daily and in greater detail with a fine tooth comb, so that files forwarded for prosecution meet the required threshold to secure convictions.

On pending human resource issues and welfare such as promotions, deployments etc, the Director whose in-tray is already full observed that he would be taking action progressively to ensure that the needs and requirements of every officer were addressed in a fair manner.

After addressing the officers, a brief handover ceremony was conducted, with Dr Hamisi Masa, who was heading the directorate in acting capacity passing over the baton to the new director.

The DCI Director was sworn into office this morning at the Supreme Court, in a ceremony presided over by the Chief Justice and President of the Supreme Court Hon Lady Justice, Martha Koome.

Also present during the ceremony were the Ag Inspector General Mr Noor Gabow, the Chairman National Police Service Commission Mr Eliud Kinuthia and the Deputy Inspector General in-charge of the Kenya Police Service, Mr Edward Mbugua, among other senior officers and commissioners of the NPSC.
