Kenya: The National Police Service Commission has formed a nine-member sub-committee to guide them on issues of transfers, promotions and discipline.

The team will also advice the commission on the pending ranking system, vetting of all senior police officers and other human resource related matters.

The members include three commissioners from the commission, three senior officers from regular police and others from Administration Police.

The move by the commission followed previous haphazard decisions by police bosses to move officers contrary to the law and without involving NPSC.

Chairman Johnston Kavuludi and his deputy Esther Colombin revealed there are pending mass transfers and promotions of officers of various ranks.

“We are working well as a commission and have met our goals. Our reform agenda is on course and we hope we will meet all the targets,” said Ms Colombin.

The two, however, protested what they termed as interference and attacks from the Commission for the Implementation of the Constitution (CIC), which they argued has been acting as their prefect.

They took issue with CIC chairman Charles Nyachae who they claimed is leading in a campaign to repeal sections of the National Police Service and the NPSC Acts in a bid to weaken the commission’s mandate for unknown motives.

“He should know he is a chairman of a commission just like us and must stop acting like a prefect. We know what the law says and are adhering to it,” said Kavuludi.

Ms Colombin said Mr Nyachae has been issuing statements to suggest there are divisions in the police commission and told him to keep off.

Nyachae, however, denied he is meddling in the affairs of the commission.
