NPSC writes to Boinnet to stop implementation of new salary payments

The National Police Service Commission has written to the Inspector-General of Police, Joseph Boinnet, stopping the implementation of new salary payments to police officers who have advanced in their education. The letter signed by Commission’s Chief Executive Officer, Joseph Onyango, said they have received complaints from police officers who view the move to vary salary payments to be discriminatory. The commission said that any variation to the Salaries should be effected procedurally after the cases are determined by the Commission. The Commission is in charge of, among other things, the welfare of police officers. It said that it has received complaints against the move to vary salary payment to officers whose status has since changed due to disability.
