Relief for Nairobians as New Police IG Koome Vows to End Ongoing Mugging and Stabbing Crimes in CBD

Kenya has today received the fourth police Inspector General Japhet Koome. Koome was nominated by the president after his inauguration. Koome takes over from former police IG Hillary Mutyambai who resigned on health grounds.

Koome has become the Fourth IG after David Mwole Kimaiyo who was promoted to the position in 2010. Previously the position was named police commissioner.

David Kimaiyo was replaced by Joseph Boinett in 2015 where he served up to 2019. After Boinett’s reign, Mutyambai took over in 2019 where he served until this year.

The new Police IG will take over at a time where residents of Nairobi and its environs have faced a rising trend in petty crimes.

So far tens of innocent Kenyans have been killed by young miscreants who are using sharp knives and home-made guns to rob from unsuspecting Kenyans.

Hundreds are admitted in various hospitals with stab wounds. However, this may come to an end as the new police boss has vowed to deal with them. Koome sent a warning to all the thugs stating that a new dawn is coming soon.

He promised to ensure Kenyans will have the freedom to walk and work freely in the CBD without fear of being stabbed.
