      Default Joseph Kamau (Former CID chief) eyes Inspector General post

      Former Director of Criminal Investigations Joseph Kamau yesterday declared his interest in the position of Inspector General advertised last week by the National Police Service Commission.

      Kamau visited the CID headquarters yesterday morning to obtain a certificate of good conduct to enable him seek the position. Kamau visited the criminal registry office where his fingerprints were taken for verification to allow him present his documents for shortlisting.

      "I have visited the CID headquarters to get a certificate of good conduct that will allow me apply for the Inspector General's position advertised recently. I hope to be given the chance to serve the police and put a foundation for good policing," Kamau said yesterday.

      "I have been an innovator and a reformer when i served the police and retired honorably. I just want to lay a good foundation for the police for the four years and leave good structures. I improved the CID and reduced violent crime when i was in office."

      Kamau, who joined the police force in1985, is credited with the seizure of the 1.1 tonnes of cocaine worth Sh 6.4 billion in December 2004 in Embakasi and Malindi.

      The former director, who disagreed with former Commissioner of Police Major General Mohammed Hussein Ali over police administration issues, headed the Banking Fraud Investigations Unit from 1992 to 2002 when he was transferred to the CID headquarters to lead the Operations unit.

      He then became the lead investigator in the Goldenberg scandal before being appointed the director of CID in 2003, a position he held until 2006 when he retired and went into private business.

      Kamau got his first degree in law enforcement in the the US and later a masters degree in policing, counter-terrorism, organised crime and contemporary policing from the United Kingdom in 1990 before joining the police force.

      Only Senior Superintendent of Police Zipporah Gateria Mboroki a Master of Arts degree holder has publicly declared her interest in the deputy Inspector General's office but there are many more police officers with degrees who are eligible and are expected to send their applications to the National Police Service Commission before the deadline.

      Retired in 2006? Was that before the Artur brothers saga?

      it's best that any former police or current police officer not to get the job cause chances are they are or were at the forefront of corrupt deals in the police force. we need a civilian not an ex-cop or current cop
