Japhet Koome, the inspector general of police, has announced organizational changes for the Nairobi police department.
Koome implemented the adjustments in an effort to combat the city's escalating insecurity rates. The adjustments are planned to go into effect right away.
The country's top law enforcement official made his announcement a day after Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki hinted at significant changes to the police force.
Adamson Bungei has been chosen to take over as the county's leader in lieu of the retired James Mugera as a result of the changes. Before being sent to Baringo county, Bungei held the position of OCPD for the Buruburu and Central police.
Munga Nyale has been replaced as the Principal Deputy by Abdallah Komesha. At the Police Headquarters, Munga will now work as the Director of Police Reforms.
In contrast, the Director of Operations is Boniface Maingi. Rashid Yakub will be replaced by Maingi, who most recently held the position of Director of Personnel for the National Police Service.
Notably, Yakub will now lead the Community Policing division.
