Manyora criticises Kindiki move to have officers transferred after 3 years

The notion that no police officer should work at one station for longer than three years, according to political expert Herman Manyora, is false.

According to him, the Wednesday directive by Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki to transfer police personnel who have worked three years at one station should be carried out while taking into account the needs of people.

The analyst suggested that the state consider the officers’ children who might be attending schools in the areas where their parents are serving before the transfers are implemented.

Manyora added that this regulation shouldn’t only apply to junior officers while ignoring senior officers.

The CS said on Wednesday that the NPS has 60 days to put the policy directive—according to which no police officer shall work at the same station for longer than three years—into effect.

The interior minister also threatened to immediately stop an officer’s income if they don’t follow the 60-day directive.

According to Kindiki, the Task Force on Police Reforms, led by Chief Justice Emeritus David Maraga, made recommendations that included the policy.

The task force’s mandate called for bettering the working conditions and implementing other changes for prisoners and police officers.

The National Police Service, the Prisons Service, and the National Youth Service should all be relocated to the security sector in terms of pay and employment conditions, according to one of the Task Force’s proposals.

Second, the National Police Service will have two entry points, the constable and cadet levels.

The qualifications for the two pathways will also be decided by the National Police Service Commission.

Third, the NPS transfer policy is followed, which states that no officer shall work at the same station for longer than three years.
