Deputy Inspector General Njoroge Mbugua commissioned the transfer of all officers at Shauri Moyo Police Station following public complaints.

Members of the public were outraged by an incident where an officer shot and injured an innocent bystander who he had mistaken for a suspect.

The residents of the area further took issue with the influx of crime in the region accusing the officers of doing very little to protect them.

The officers allegedly tried to cover up the mistaken identity. They were also accused of harassing the residents and demanding bribes.

Shauri Moyo Police officer replaced

The officers, who will report to their new stations on February 27, have already been replaced by a new team.

Interior PS Karanja Kibicho also announced a reshuffle of four county commissioners on Thursday.

Kajiado County Commissioner David Kipkemei was moved to the Office of the President and in his place, Nakuru’s Joshua Nkanatha was appointed.

Trans Nzoia county commissioner Erastus Mbui is the new Nakuru county boss and in his stead, Naivasha deputy County boss was appointed in an acting capacity.
