Police vetting board asked for bribes

No wonder some people with funny characters passed the vetting with flying colors.

The whole exercise might be a big joke being played on Kenyan live on national TV.

——————————————————————————————————-

NATIONAL Police Service Commission Chairman Johnstone Kavuludi has denied reports that some NPSC commissioners demanded bribes from interviewees during the police vetting.

He at the same time denied that Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo had raised this concern at a meeting at the commission headquarters in Westlands on Tuesday.

Reliable sources familiar with the discussions said the meeting was called to discuss appeals lodged by 12 senior police officers who were kicked out of the service after failing the vetting test.

The sources said that the Kavuludi commission also discussed the planned vetting of police officers in the ranks of Senior Superintendent of Police and Superintendent of Police, as well as an application by AP Deputy Commandant Omar Shurie, who has applied not to be retired by the commission.

Shurie, who is in charge of the AP Training School, Embakasi, has applied to be retained until he attains the age of 65 because he is physically challenged.

Yesterday, Kavuludi confirmed the above agendas had been discussed, but denied that the IG had raised the allegations of corruption at the same meeting. “I am shocked to hear that. It has not been brought to my attention and I can tell you it was not part of the discussions that we held,” Kavuludi said on the phone yesterday. He remarked that the police should investigate and prosecute any of the commissioners said to have solicited bribes.

The sources said Kimaiyo told fellow commissioners that some senior police officers, some of whom have undergone the vetting, had complained to him that they had been asked for money to influence the outcome of their vetting.

Other police officers had complained that their documents had gone missing after being handed over to the commission and alleged that some commissioners were harassing them over documents that have been lost or misplaced while in the hands of the NPSC.

“When it came to AOB, the IG raised the issue. The chairman continued to jot down notes,” said the sources, who requested strict anonymity.

The meeting was attended by four of the civilian commissioners, Kimaiyo and his two deputies Grace Kaindi and Samuel Arachi, and CID Chief Ndegwa Muhoro. The civilians are chairman Kavuludi, lawyer Murshid Mohammed, Ronald Musengi and Mary Owour, a retired police officer.

Commissioner Shadrack Muiu, a retired military officer has been away on medical grounds, while Esther Chui Colombini, who served as the vice-chair, passed away in 2013.

Last evening, Kimaiyo could not be reached for comment on the startling allegations. Neither the IG, his deputies nor the CID chief, who were present at the meeting and who are privy to the complaints, have taken a step further, such as reporting the allegations to the Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission.
