Ali takes office at Teleposta Towers
Posted on Monday, September 14, 2009 @ 17:58:48 CDT by kwpnews


NAIROBI (Lawrence Njenga) - Former police boss Major General Hussein Ali assumed his new office Monday at Teleposta Towers in Nairobi.

Ali was last week moved from the position of police commissioner and appointed the post master general.

Ali's transfer came at a time when the government is instigating reforms in the police department.

Ali came under fire after a report by UN rapporteur Prof Philip Alston which implicated the security apparatus in extra-judicial killings called for his sacking.

He appeared unperturbed by the recommendations even as the civil society and some legislators called for his removal.

His initial appointment as police commissioner in 2004 had similarly caused an uproar with many questioning the rationale of putting a military man as head of the police unit.

During his tenure Ali attempted to bring in a new strategy to fight crime including the introduction of specialized squads to fight crime and the police helicopter which was credited with reducing night crime and muggings.

And to avoid the kind of uproar caused by the re-appointment of Aaron Ringera as head of the Kenya Anti Corruption Commission, President Kibaki is said to have consulted with the Prime Minister Raila Odinga on Ali's removal and the appointment of his successor Matthew Iteere.

It will be interesting to see how Ali handles his new posting at Teleposta towers in a corporation that has in the past been accused of being inefficient and riddled with corruption.

The military had made it clear that Ali is still a general and the Defence Council will decide his fate when it meets in November.
