Newly appointed acting Director of Criminal Investigations, George Kinoti on Monday formally took over from Ndegwa Muhoro, with promises to do his best to ensure the country’s security.

Mr Muhoro whose six-year term was to end in February, handed over to Mr Kinoti in a closed-door ceremony at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations headquarters along Kiambu Road.

The changes were announced on Friday last week by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The Deputy Inspectors General of Police in charge of both the Kenya Police and the Administration Police, Joel Kitili and Samuel Arachi were also replaced.

On Monday, Mr Kinoti who has been celebrated for cracking down on criminal gangs in Nairobi, to which he once fell victim, reported to work with optimism that he would help fast-track pending criminal cases and also crack down on illegal criminal gangs.

IN-TRAY

On his in-tray are several pending files including those of mysterious murders, land and banking fraud, terror attacks, organized criminal gangs, corruption cases and many more.

Colleagues are optimistic Mr Kinoti has the capacity to transform the Directorate of Criminal Investigations, under which several units, squads and formations fall.

“What I like about him is that he is a listener and prefers to confront issues heads-on. He is an operations man and I tend to believe that he will be tackling issues he understands,” a colleague said.

Mr Kinoti will be in charge of the Special Crime Prevention Unit (SCPU), Banking Fraud Investigations Unit (BFID), the Flying Squad, The Anti-Narcotics Unit, The Bomb and Hazardous Disposal Unit, Anti-Terrorism Police Unit (ATPU), Cybercrime Investigation Unit among others.

Mr Kinoti, 50, holds a Master’s degree in security management from Egerton University.

He also graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in sociology in 1992.
