Song and dance characterized the event as the children interacted with DCI staff including the DCI Director George Kinoti, who joined them in the celebrations. The DCI choir also sung beautiful Christmas carols, as the colourful ceremony hit fever pitch.
Packages of foodstuff donated by Philanthropist Malkit Singh Main, INSTA products CEO Mr Dhiren Chandaria, Mafuko Bakers Ltd in Meru, Anytime Limited and other well-wishers were also shared with the families.

While wishing the children and DCI staff a Merry Christmas, Mr Kinoti thanked God for the many milestones that the Directorate had achieved this year, inspite of a few challenges. He urged Kenyans of goodwill to continue praying for officers in the field, as he called on detectives to stay focused on their mandate in the fight against crime.
