President Uhuru Gives Kenya World Class Police Academy

Published

on

President Uhuru Kenyatta has been credited with closer working relationship with the Military and Police since he came to power.

The Kenyan leader who once in a while appears in public wearing full military uniform, has also created new departments and expanded the security budget and engagement in war against terrorism.

On Tuesday, President Uhuru turned the page in his determination to professionalise the country’s Police. The Kenyan Police has been considered one of the most corrupt institutions in East Africa’s largest economy.

Uhuru presided over the groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of the National Police Service Leadership Academy.

“The idea of this leadership academy was born out of my administrative desire to see police leadership on another level,” President Uhuru Kenyatta said on Tuesday.

Details show that this Academy will sit on a 120-acre piece of land and will host 120 housing units for more than 300 police officers attached to the Central Bank of Kenya (CBK).

According to sources, this academy is a world-class leadership college in Kajiado County jointly developed by National Police Service in partnership with the Central Bank of Kenya (CBK).

The institution will be a unique facility for training senior police officers on leadership.

“All these efforts are aimed at making the Police more efficient at service delivery,” President Uhuru said.

He urged Kenyans to restrain from attacking police officers on duty, saying “they are not your enemies.”

The rogue officers within the police service, the President assured, will be weeded out.

The project is expected to be completed and commissioned by January 2022.

The facility will replace the Loresho college, which was converted into an institution of training prosecutors.

Tanzania’s President Samia Scheduled For Kenya Visit

Published

Kenya’s Presidency has confirmed that President Samia Suluhu Hassan of the United Republic of Tanzania is scheduled to jet in to Nairobi for a 2-day State Visit on Tuesday.

Kanze Dena-Mararo Kenya’s State House spokesperson said other details of President Suluhu’s visit will be shared in due course.

President Samia Suluhu is a sharp contrast of her predecessor John Pombe Magufuli who passed away recently.

On April 11President Samia Suluhu made her first trip outside the country since taking oath of office. She flew to neighbouring Uganda, a trip her handlers said was aimed at strengthening bilateral ties and finalize the East African Crude Oil Pipeline (EACOP) Tripartite project agreement.

The Tanzanian leader has drawn a line under her predecessor’s controversial stances on COVID-19 and the media, indicating an apparent change in course for the nation after the death of John Magufuli in March.

“We cannot segregate ourselves like an island, but also we cannot blindly accept what is being brought forward to us (on COVID-19) without carrying out our own investigations and inputs,” she told officials at State House in the commercial capital Dar es Salaam. “Let us have a stance.”

President Suluhu also announced that media that had been banned by Magufuli’s government should be allowed to operate.

“We should not ban the media by force. Reopen them, and we should ensure they follow the rules. We should not give them room to say we are shrinking press freedom.”
