A joint committee of the Senate and the National Assembly has approved Japhet Koome to be Kenya’s next Inspector General of Police.
Koome’s approval, which took place on Wednesday, November 8, came just a day after he appeared before the committee for vetting.
Since the departure of his predecessor Hillary Mutyambai on September 13, the position has been under the stewardship of Noor Gabow who served in an acting capacity.
Koome was nominated by President William Ruto on Tuesday, September 27 in accordance with the Constitution.
