Government spokesperson Erick Kiraithe has refuted claims that he about to take IG Boinet job.
Boinnet’s four-year term which comes to an end in March have seen a few candidates fight for the position.
Kiraithe together with GSU Commandant Douglas Kanja, Police spokesman Charles Owino and DCI boss George Kinoti are among top cops who could replace Boinnet.
According to Kiraithe while speaking on Monday in Mombasa’s Mbaraki Sports Club said the replacement of the next IG is non issue.
In addition he said, “The position has not even been advertised.”
He further added saying he holds a critical government position that requires no distraction by future events.
“I have not even done 50 per cent of what wanted to do at this current position,” he noted.
He said he wants to focus on what he can do to help improve the country.
“Debate on this does not help,” he said.
At the same time, Kirathe has asked Kenyans not to be obsessed with 2022 politics.
He said the government’s main focus is to implement development projects to all Kenyans and asked Kenyans to ignore leaders who keep talking about succession politics.
“The frequent politicking even in media houses cannot bring food to Kenyans,” Kiraithe said.
Kiraithe says the government is committed to fighting terrorism, to ensure citizens focus on their business without fear of attacks.
