Adamson Bungei, the head of the Turkana Central police, has been appointed the new Nairobi police commander.
Mr. Bungei, who had long held several senior positions inside the city until being sent to Turkana in January, will succeed Manasse Musyoka, who was just appointed the new head of the Nairobi police department last week.
In changes announced by Noor Gabow, the interim Police IG, Musyoka, who has held the office for less than a week, replaced James Mugera, who has since retired from the service.
This announcement by IG Koome comes just one day after Interior Cabinet Secretary Kindiki Kithure issued a warning that criminals holding Nairobi captive for weeks would have nowhere to hide.
"Those boys who have dared the government, we have also heard you and we are coming with immediate effect," said CS Kindiki.
He promised a thorough clean-up of the city where all criminals will be apprehended and dealt with in accordance with the law.
"We will remove these sons and daughters who are terrorizing city dwellers and put them where criminals belong," added Kindiki.
Jacinta Muthoni, who has been named the director of personnel at police headquarters, Vigilance House, and Munga Nyale, who will serve as the Director of Police Reforms, were both transferred by IG Koome.
