New DCI Boss Massa Responds to Dp Gachagua Days after Succeeding Kinoti

The Directorate of Criminal Investigations has made it plain that they won't give up on finding graft lords and won't disregard information about unlawful activity. The new multi-agency committee established to oversee the implementation of the Auditor General audit conclusions was addressed by the acting DCI on Tuesday.

Given recent unresolved audit results, the new team might keep President William Ruto's accounting officials on their toes. Only a few days after George Kinoti was ejected from his position, acting DCI director Hamisi Massa chastised anyone who criticized the organization's monitoring tactics.

We gave DCI the order to go back to Kiambu Road and watch for information about illegal behavior. According to DP Rigathi Gachagua, they shouldn't be buzzing over government buildings like flies because all they do is pollute the air. The newly appointed head of the anti-narcotics unit appeared to be using a different strategy than the recently appointed deputy president, Rigathi Gachagua.

More than two weeks ago, Gachagua denounced anti-graft organizations and demanded that they stop constantly watching public officials. According to critics, the DP's comments will promote impunity and sleaze, which will worry the institutions.

Massa stressed that the public has high expectations for the agencies' efforts to combat serious crimes while addressing a session of chiefs of constitutional and independent offices that the Auditor General had organized. When we come for you, we'll be cordial but firm. We're aiming for a humane enforcement strategy. When you feel joyful, we'll meet up.

He also reassured the populace that the police would act swiftly to make any necessary arrests. The investigator claims that instances of corruption, bribery, and cyber-security frequently have an impact on the "who is who in the country."

Anyone suspected of committing a crime will be called in and, if necessary, held while the case is being investigated, according to the police. Concern was raised by such organizations when the Vice President recently publicly criticized anti-graft officials for suspected surveillance, intrusion, and disrespect.

A new cross-departmental team has been formed to guarantee that the recommendations made by Auditor General Nancy Gathungu are implemented. Depressing reports are frequently overlooked.

In a recent televised interview, the Vice President continued his criticism of the DCI by directly mentioning the former director in his remarks.

"We don't need a politician, a sob tale, or a showman; we need an experienced DCI. A DCI who is above the fray and the news headlines are necessary. Gachagua said as such.

We require someone who will conduct in-depth investigations, gather evidence, pursue cases vigorously, and obtain convictions for the accused. We had a DCI who enjoyed speaking with the media; as Gachagua described it, he complicated the DCI's job description.

The DP was most worried about the spies employed by the DCI, EACC, NIS, and other organizations. According to Massa, the goal of police operations is to "make people aware that there are consequences to what they do.
