Boinet’s Appointment a sign of Hope


The former National Intelligence officer Joseph Kipchirchir Boinet is the new Inspector General of police amidst controversies surrounding his appointment.

This comes at a time when the country is in a state of instability, ranging from regular threats from the Al-shabaab, inter community/clan retaliatory attacks and cattle rustling in some regions in the country.

Boinet’s familiarity and understanding of the loopholes of our national security while serving in the National Security Intelligence Service (NSIS) will certainly take up the challenges of the position with knowledge and a clear understanding of the associated problems.

Boinet is said to be well familiar with the intelligence body which will serve him an advantage as he will obtain support from the NIS.

I have high hopes that he will tackle insecurity issues and withhold the pressure from the government and the public unlike the former IG.

In major areas especially for the reason that he is an intelligence operative himself, group identity and gesture are likely to see him viable to the intelligence and tactics displayed by the enemy.

This is was yet again another sober decision made by the president especially during this challenging security times.

Although Kenyans view the appointment as politically and ethnic motivated, I see the move as creditable and worthy, people from the rift valley could be heard celebrating as one of their own has yet again snatched that seat which It’s a normal reaction considering the fact that the region has been experiencing insecurity issues lately but that’s not the point, Boinet is expected to represent the country as a whole.

Also it is with great concern for the public to sit back and think off record about the political/ethnic affiliations but to consider how qualified candidates of the ability of Boinet are hard to come by.

Do not look at the ethnic background of the nominee but at the results he will generate in the role he is tasked with.
