He expressed confidence that the ‘One Government’ approach, which puts county commissioners in charge of coordination of all national government activities at the county level, would play a big role in curbing crime.

“Remind the officers of the new Government’s way of operation where county commissioners are the co-ordinators of all national government activities in the counties.There is no need for a police officer to start saying I have to consult my boss on this and that,” Matiang’i said as quoted by The Standard.

He told police commanders to direct their juniors to work closely with the national government officer in the area of public safety and in particular fighting criminal activities such as illegal gambling machines, illicit brews, land grabbing and muggings .
Under the Constitution, police are supposed to report to the Inspector General of police.

He has also reshuffled 47 regional and county commissioners as his ministry intensifies its crackdown on Opposition leaders.

One of the notable changes is the replacement of Coast Regional Commissioner Nelson Marwa with Bernard Lemparmarai.

Marwa was recently promoted by President Uhuru Kenyatta after being picked as the Devolution Principal Secretary.
