Interior and Coordination of National Government Cabinet Secretary, CS, Fred Matiang’i has directed all chiefs and assistant County Commissioners, in Kenya, to undergo paramilitary training within the next six months. The CS was speaking during a sensitisation workshop, yesterday, with 93 assistant county commissioners on police reforms
“The 440 of the ACCs (Assistant County Commissioners) in the service and the 3,400 chiefs who have not undergone paramilitary training will have to do so in the next six months,” CS Matiang’i ordered.
The CS said that program had been finalized and his Ministry was working with the Deputy Inspector General in charge of Administration Police to roll it out. The programme is geared towards harmonization of government security services.
“We have capacity and we are ready to provide it and we realise that it will prepare you even better for the service that we require you to render as we go forward,” Matiang’i said.
He further noted that the programme will be rolled out countrywide, “We are doing this training across the country because we want to make sure that we are clearly harmonized and effectively coordinated. We want to act seamlessly as the coordinators of national government.”
