He said that anyone could reach him on 0722415419.

The new DCI boss beat nine other candidates who all appeared before the National Police Service Commission for interviews.

"The National Police Service Commission has approved the transfer of services for George Kinoti, CBS, former Director, Directorate of Criminal Investigation, from the National Police Service Commission to the Public Service Commission with remuneration and privileges personal to himself, with effect from September 27, 2022, until attainment of mandatory retirement age," NPSC said in the statement.

Under the PSC, Kinoti will still receive remunerations and benefits like any other civil servant. Kinoti left the DCI two years before the end his six-year term.
