TOUGHER RULES FOR POLICE RECRUITMENT - KAVULUDI

THE National Police Service Commission says tough measures have been put in place to ensure the 2015 police recruitment is conducted without a hitch.
NPSC boss Johnston Kavuludi said the Monday recruitment will be transparent.
"The commission will ensure the strict rules the commission has set are followed," he said.
Speaking to Weekly Citizen on the phone yesterday, Kavuludi said the commission has published the regulations that must be adhered to.
He said the courts will rule on the 2014 recruitment which was nullified. Kavuludi said those who had been selected last year are eligible to try again.
"This recruitment is not in any way linked to what happened last year. The 2014 matter is in the courts. This is the normal recruitment that must happen every year," he said.
The National Assembly Committee on Administration and National Security pointed out corruption and regional imbalance in the 2014 recruitment.
Kavuludi has called on the Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinett to ensure officers in charge of the exercise conduct it well.
Early this year, the NPSC delegated the function of recruitment and appointment to the Office of the Inspector General while the commission was left with the policy bit.
"Our hope is that the IG is making the best out of the need to have a clean process on Monday," Kavuludi said. Training of the new recruits will kick off immediately after the recruitment.
This comes after a deadly massacre that left 147 people dead in Garissa University College on April2.
