NEWS JUST IN: DCI Boss Reorganises Anti-Counterfeit Unit

Amin Mohamed, Director of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), has reorganized the Anti-Counterfeit and Contraband Goods Police Unit, which was established in 2018 by George Kinoti, Mohamed's predecessor.

However, he did not confirm or deny the transfer of bosses and did not provide additional details regarding the matter. On November 22, the announcement was made. Previously, it had been reported that Amin had transferred all of the Unit's senior commanders and disbanded the unit.

Chief Inspector Nathan Njoroge, the unit's boss, was moved to the Tabaka DCI office in Mandera, according to reports. Additionally, the changes had an impact on at least 37 officers in the unit. Especially noteworthy was the fact that the unit was in charge of dealing with fake goods that accidentally entered the country.

In addition, the unit collaborated with the Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS) to eliminate counterfeit goods and was established to prevent their importation. The country was reportedly plagued by allegations of counterfeit and contaminated sugar at the time. Together with Kinoti, former Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i promised to catch the culprits.

On October 15, Acting Inspector General of Police Noor Gaboow issued an order to disband the Special Service Unit (SSU), prompting the alterations.
