Immediately after Mohamed Amin was sworn into office as the new director of criminal investigation (DCI), he quickly made a few changes in the manner his predecessor, George Kinoti, had organized his team to ensure that there is law and order in the country.
Mohamed Amin disbanded a task force that was put in place by George Kinoti to curb security threats that need immediate action. The task force led to the disappearance of two indian citizens and a Kenyan driver who was taking them around.
Today, Mohamed Amin has also disbanded the anti-counterfeit bureau which was established by George Kinoti under the orders of the former Cabinet Secretary of Interior, Dr. Fred Matiangi.
The task force was formed in 2018 and its main duty and responsibility were to fight counterfeit products which had not been authorized by the Kenya Bureau of Statistics (KEBS).

However, the task force failed to protect Kenyans from the consumption of more than 14 types of cooking oil which never passed the standards of KEBS. Recently, Kenyans alcoholic are dying of counterfeit alcohol.
DCI Mohamed Amin disbanded the task force for failing in numerous instances to offer their mandates.
