Kenya's National Police Service Commission (NPSC) has appointed the taskforce charged with auditing the recently launched police recruitment exercise, Kenya's Capital FM reported Tuesday (July 22nd).
The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) called on the NPSC to investigate the recruitment process last week after receiving reports of bribery, favouritism, nepotism and discrimination in the recruitment process.
The team has seven days to complete their investigations, NPSC Chairman Johnstone Kavuludi said.
"A multi-agency working group comprising above-mentioned parties has been formed and will be chaired by Commissioner Murshid Mohammed. They will collect, collate and analyse all complaints and make recommendations to the commission for further action," Kavuludi said. "A comprehensive audit report will then be issued."
The NPSC called for public feedback to support the audit, and has since received 350 reports, Kenya's Daily Nation reported.
"We wish to assure the citizens of Kenya that together we have undertaken a collaborative approach to undertake a comprehensive audit of the complaints received and will not hesitate to take stern action on anybody found culpable and where necessary such action shall include nullification of the exercise at the affected centres," Kavuludi said according to Capital FM.
