    The 13 were redirected to report to their work stations on Thursday, January 20 while the rest are expected at their new stations on Friday, January 28.

    "The rest of the officers to report to their new stations on or before January 28, 2022. Ensure proper handing/taking over is done and confirm departure/arrival," directed the statement.

    Those transferred to the fraud unit are Bernard Kwarat, Daniel Muhuhi (from the DCI headquarters planning department), Moses Oreata, Fredrick Okeyo, Josphine Andia and Elias Mwanje Baya.

    Others are Joseph Wambua Ndonye, Mugambi Benjamin Gikundi, Pauline Wanjiku Wamuya, Gladys Kipruto, Felix Otieno Hongo, Simon Ndarwa Mwangi and Faith Mukui Kitheka.

    Lilian Otieno was moved from the revenue fraud unit to Mombasa Railways Terminus while Nicholas Mutinda was transferred from Naivasha to Kakamega South office.

    Mary Mueni Mbai, on the other hand, was moved from Kakamega South and will now be stationed at Magarini while Philip Rukwaro will leave Coast office to Ganze.

    Daniel Makau was transferred from the Ganze office and will now serve in the Busia's Anti-Terror Police Unit (ATPU) while Augustine Mutembei was transferred from the Kiambaa DCI office to Dandora.

    The reshuffle comes just months after 44 senior officers were reorganised in July 2021 as the agency moves to beef up security during the 2022 General Election. 

    The then report indicated that the shuffles came about after some officers retired from the workforce.
