Felix Koskei, the chief of staff and head of the public service for President William Ruto, has left Kenyans talking after secretly meeting with top police commanders, a sign that something significant is in the works.
Together with senior employees from his office, Koskei visited the National Police Service’s Jogoo House headquarters where he spoke with top officers under the direction of Inspector General of Police Japhet Koome.
Other attendees were Director DCI Mohamed Amin, DIG APS Noor Gabow, Deputy Inspector General of Kenya Police (DIG KPS) Edward Mbugua, and Police CEO Bernice S. Lemedeket.
The high-profile meeting was caused by a specific operation that is planned, according to those who were present.
Details suggest that there may be a planned campaign against corruption, and that prominent figures may soon be held accountable.
It is unusual for such reunions to occur. According to a source, additional operations are anticipated to take place soon.
A working partnership was decided upon during a meeting Koskei held with senior leaders of the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission days prior to the visit.
A team from Koskei’s office attended the meeting with CEO Twalib Mbarak, Immediate Former EACC Chairperson Eliud Wabukala, Commissioners, and the senior management.
Koskei reassured the Commission that the government is committed to upholding the mandate of the EACC, according to sources within the anti-graft organization.
