The newly appointed Inspector of police Hillary Mutyambai has revealed that he will uphold high standards of integrity to serve as an example to other officers.
Speaking during his vetting he said, “I will treat every officer as a clean officer. I will engage all of them to agree on our mode of our operation. From there, I will start monitoring them to identify the corrupt officers,”
When questioned about his wealth, he revealed his net worth was Sh30 million.
In addition he said, that he will ensure full implementation of the National Police Management system and transform every police station into a service centre.
“I will engage the NPSC and SRC to review the rates for house allowance for police,” he said adding that some rates, especially for those serving in Nairobi, are low.
“Say a police officer working in Kilimani he is only getting house allowance of Sh15,000 but rates around that area for a house is Sh50, 000.”
The nominee said he will embrace the multi-agency approach and bring all the stakeholders to unify the service and secure the nation.
On extrajudicial killings, Mutyambai said he will ensure the committee domiciled with the service to identify rogue officers.
“Each officer will be held liable for their actions. We will take actions according to the law. I will work closely with IPOA, DPP brings sanity in the service,” he said.
