President William Ruto appointed Amin Mohammed Ibrahim as the new Director of Criminal Investigations.
Amin was appointed vide a gazette notice dated October 14, 2022, to replace former Director George Kinoti who tendered his resignation.
His appointment follows a rigorous vetting exercise of 10 candidates conducted by the National Police Service Commission.
The commission later forwarded its recommendations to the President to make the appointment.
Prior to his appointment, Amin was the Director of the Internal Affairs Unit, mandated to investigate complaints against police.
The new DCI chief returns to the Directorate where he has previously served in various senior positions, including the head of the DCI Investigations Bureau, head of Operations, O/C Banking Fraud unit among other specialised units in the Directorate.
His vast experience in the field of investigations within and outside the Directorate will, without doubt, inject fresh blood into the country’s foremost investigative agency and address the ever-changing crime dynamics.
Kinoti has since been redeployed to the public service commission.
