Kenya's National Police Service Commission (NPSC) has found three senior police officers fit to continue serving in the force after investigations showed allegations raised against them were unsubstantiated, Kenya's Capital FM reported Wednesday (January 29th).

Deputy Director of the Criminal Investigations Depatment Gideon Kimilu, Deputy Director of Police Reforms King'ori Mwangi and Administration Police Head of Operations Peter Pamba join 18 of their colleagues at the rank of deputy commissioner of police who were cleared for service during the second phase of the police vetting campaign.

NPSC chairman Johnstone Kavualudi warned members of the public to refrain from bringing false or unsupported information to the committee.

"Members of the public should desist from giving information calculated to fix officers as the vetting exercise is not a witch-hunt but a noble exercise aimed at reforming the police service," he said.

Two deputy commissioners of police were sacked last week following the vetting, which every member of the police force will undergo.
