Pursuant to article 246 subsection 3 (a) of the Constitution of Kenya 2010 ,the National Police Service Commission (NPSC) on 14th July 2014 undertook the recruitment of 10,000 people to be trained as police constables and later be deployed to the National Police Service .
The Commission, under by section 13 of the NPSC Act established both the National and Sub-County committees to oversee the exercise with the latter getting direction from the national committee headed by a commissioner at the NPSC.A regulatory policy and guidelines were put in place by the Commission to direct the recruitment exercise.
In compliance with the section 11 (1)( f) of the NPSC Act, the Commission upon the completion of the exercise undertook an audit of the exercise. The Commission incorporated members from the Ministry of Interior and National Co-ordination, Ethics and Anti-CorruptionCommission and Directorate of Criminal Investigation into the audit team. The Audit took two weeks and the findings were submitted to a joint committee comprising the NPSC,EACC,DCI and the Ministry of Interior and National Co-ordination in line with section 10(d) that requires ‘the Commission cooperates with other state agencies ,departments or commissions on any matter that the Commission considers necessary’.
The audit reviewed 621 complaints received about some recruitment centers.These complaints were analyzed to determine the extent to which the recruitment process complied with the laid down guidelines and more specifically to ensure that there was fairness, transparency and integrity in the exercise.
Arising from the nature of issues raised in the complaints ,the Commission is of the considered view that some recruitment centers fell short of the standards set by the Commission and as such the exercise in those centers needs to be annulled and a repeat of the same be undertaken .
All relevant offices and government agencies will be given the full report to enable them take necessary action against members of the recruitment committees found culpable. In this regard each institution will take appropriate action against its officers who were in the recruiting committee and found culpable.
The Ministry of Interior and National Co-ordination will take appropriate administrative and disciplinary action against Sub- County Commissioners, Ministry of Health against Medical officers, Ministry of Education against Education Officers and the National Police Service against Police Officers found responsible and guilty for the malpractices complained about.
All acts which are criminal in nature, corrupt and indicate professional misconduct will be vigorously pursued andprosecuted the results shall be made public.
