Top cops Philip Tuimur and Eusebias Laibuta have been sacked following results of the on-going police vetting exercises.
Other cops Mwangi Kingori and Gideon Kimilu have been put under probe.

The commission had been meeting since Tuesday to review the performance of the officers ahead of the big announcement.

Some of the vetted officers told The Standard they had been asked to be at the commission offices Skypark Plaza by 10 am.

“We are tensed and we do not know why they told us to wear our uniforms because if for instance you are informed you failed, how do you leave? It could have been better if we went in civilian clothes,” said one of the officers summoned.

Those vetted included Kingori Mwangi (Police Headquarters), Benson Kibue (Nairobi Commander), Beatrice Nduta (Police Headquarters), Charlton Mureith (Police Headquarters), Agrey Adoli (Mombasa), Levin Mwandi (OP), Leo Nyongesa (InternalAffairs Unit), Francis Munyambu (Nairobi Metropolitan Police), Silas McOpiyo (Planning), Joseph ole Tito (Kenya Airports Police Unit), Julius Kanampiu (IGP’s office), Mercus Ochola and Joseph Ashimala (Kenya Police College).

Others are Joel Mboya Kitili (Rift Valley), Boniface Maingi (GSU), Gideon Kimilu (CID Headquarters), Rodgers Mbithi (Kenya Police Airwing), Eusedius Laibuta (AP Senior Staff College), and Peter Pamba, Philip Tuimur (vigilance), Francis Wanjohi (firearms) and Fred Mwei (AP).

Commissioner Murshid Mohamed said the public will know the fate of the officers on Monday. The vetting of 180 other senior police officers is scheduled to start in mid-February.

The Commission has sought the public views on 66 Senior Assistant Commissioners of Police and 115 Assistant Commissioners of Police.
