Transfers

Gideon Kibunja was moved from Rift Valley and named the new commandant of the DCI Training School, South C.

On Monday, Inspector General of police Joseph Boinnet is expected to announce the new 390 Officers Commanding Police Division (OCPDs). 

In January, DCI Kinoti transferred five senior DCI officers in Nairobi, in changes he said were aimed at boosting operations.
