Top uniformed men are lined up as possible successors of the outgoing inspector of police Joseph Boinnet.

Sources within the National Police Service (NPS) said Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti, Deputy Inspector-General Edward Mbugua and Mr Gabow are being considered for the position.

Former National Counter Terrorism Centre Director Isaac Ochieng, General Service Unit Commandant Douglas Kanja, Director of Corporate Communications Charles Owino and the Police Training Cllege Commandant Kingóri Mwangi were also mentioned as some of the potential candidates for the position.

However, Mr Kinoti, whose term lasts six years, might not be selected because his current war against corruption may be crippled.

An Assistant Inspector-General stationed at Vigilance House said officers preferred the appointment of an insider who understands the service well.

Approached to comment on his term, Mr Boinnet said it was premature but promised to talk towards the end of his tenure.
