Three senior police officers have been retired by their employer after failing to pass the first phase of the vetting process.
Senior Deputy Commissioner of Police Francis Okonya, Senior Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of police reforms Jonathan Koskei and Senior Deputy Commissioner of Police in the office of the Inspector General of Police Peter Eregae were retired for being unsuitable after the vetting exercise.
They are the first casualties of the exercise that was conducted in December to check on their suitability to be service.
Those who survived included General Service Unit (GSU) Commandant William Saiya, Kiganjo Police Training College Commandant Peter Kavila, the Director of the Small Arms Secretariat John Patrick Ochieng and Abdi Shurie of the Administration Police Training College.
The National Police Service Commission made the announcement after looking into the officers' performance.
