David Birech Replaces DCI Boss Amin At IAU

In place of Mohamed Amin who was appointed Director of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) by President William Ruto on October 14 the Internal Affairs Unit (IAU) of the National Police Service has a new leader.

According to a police source David Kipkosgey Birech took over as the Director of the IAU on December 7th.

He previously held positions at Vigilance Staff Officer Training and Jogoo House Directorate of Reforms.

Additionally, after George Kinoti resignation from the DCI in late September he was a candidate to succeed him.

The DCI also sent ten new, experienced investigators to the Unit.

They were found and hired in 2021 but because of administrative difficulties they remained at the DCI until recently when the Inspector General (IG) ordered the Director of DCI to release them and report to IAU to strengthen the investigations department.

He will be required to look into cases of torture and other cruel inhumane or humiliating treatment or punishment meted out by police officers in his capacity as the next director of the IAU.

Additionally he will learn about the difficulties that police officers face as well as any workplace complaints.
