Interior Cabinet Secretary (CS) Kithure Kindiki pat himself on the back for lowering the crime levels in the country in his first 100 days in office.
Kindiki told the press on Monday, February 6, that quelling crime in the country including tackling criminals that had taken over Nairobi and dealing with bandits was among his top 10 achievements.
He explained that his new approach, holding consultative meetings with citizens, leaders, and assorted stakeholders, played a great role in his success in fighting crime.
The Interior boss added that the National Police Service (NPS) recruited and deployed more officers as the first cause of action to tackle crime.Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki attending the official operationalization of the new Cianda Division in Kiambaa Constituency, Kimabu County on February 1, 2023Kithure Kindiki
"The new officers will be deployed to security hotspots across the country immediately to further buttress the security of our people and their property," he explained.
Kindiki prided himself in bringing reforms to the police sector through the Gazettement of the Task Force on Terms and Conditions and other Reforms of the NPS and Kenya Prisons Service (KPS).
He further improved the welfare of officers by commissioning the launch of the Police Leadership Academy and improving officers' access to health care.
"Achievements include acceleration of the construction of the National Police Hospital (Mbagathi), The Kenya Prisons Hospital (Ruiru), and equipment of the Border Police Hospital in Kitui, to be officially opened on February 24," Kindiki stated.
The Interior boss also listed the digitization of services including the introduction of the online registration of births and deaths, the Unique Personal Identifier (UPI) at birth for all newborns, and the smart ID card.
He also recognised his efforts in streamlining services at the State Department for Immigration Services.
"Streamlining of the E-passport issuance procedures and restoration of supply of passport booklets and initiating the process for acquisition and installation of the Advance Passenger Information (API) system," his scorecard noted.
The API system will work alongside an electronic surveillance system at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) to identify passengers upon arrival.
Kindiki revealed that under his tenure, the backlog of citizenship and work permit applications has been dealt with.Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki and President William Ruto during the pass-out parade for the Kenya Police constables at Kiganjo, Nyeri County on January 10, 2023Kithure Kindikicriminal death fight
