Amid the runaway insecurity in the capital city, Inspector General of Police, Japheth Koome has appointed former Turkana Central police boss, Adamson Bungei as the new Nairobi County Police Commander.
Bungei takes over from Manase Musyoka who is yet to take over office almost one week since he was appointed to replace Jame Mugera who has retired.
Mugera had taken over as the man in-charge of Nairobi County security from Augustine Thumbi mid this year.
Not a visitor in Nairobi, Bungei served in several police stations in the capital before being moved. At one point, he worked as OCS at Central and Buruburu police stations.
The appointment of Bungei comes at a time the country's security chiefs have been talking tough on the runaway insecurity in Nairobi.
On Monday, Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja met with the IG and other senior police officers to discuss the roadmap to improved security in the capital.
Earlier, the Interior Cabinet Secretary Prof. Kindiki Kithure had fired a warning shot as he put all the perpetrators of insecurity in Nairobi on notice, saying that the government was going to crack the whip.
But at the end of the day, all eyes will be on Bungei. Will he be the answer to Nairobi's insecurity?
