Why OCSs will soon ‘vanish’ from all police stations



Plans are underway by the National Police Service (NPS) to scrap the positions of Officers Commanding Stations (OCSs) and replacing them with Ward Police Commanders.

Inspector General Hilary Mutyambai has said that those who will be appointed to the newly-created positions will be drawn from the Kenya Police Service, the Administrative Police Service and sleuths from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).


This is different from what was the norm in the past where OCS officers were only picked from the Kenya Police Service.

Two weeks ago, OCS officers attended a training that prepared them for their roles and what is expected of them as Ward Police Commanders.

This means that there will be a total of 1,450 Ward Police Commanders who will be in-charge of officers in various wards.


Last month, the National Police Service scrapped the position of Officer Commanding Police Division (OCPD) and appointed Sub-County Police Commanders (SCPCs) as part of the changes aimed at aligning the police geographic and operational boundaries with the current administrative boundaries.

This means that Kenya will have a total of 322 SCPCs compared to the 597 OCPDs and Nairobi will have 11 SCPCs, down from the 14 OCPDs.

“It’s been 25 years since my dad left this world. I was just a little boy but I knew he loved us and he spoiled us rotten. It was almost as if he understood that he wouldn’t be with us for long. The years after weren’t always easy but I think we’ve made him proud #HappyFathersDay,” he wrote.

VIDEO: What did you say? Jeff Koinange’s ‘Threesome’ remark catches Rubadiri off guard



Citizen TV‘s Jeff Koinange on Sunday night caught fellow anchor Victoria Rubadiri off guard when he made an awkward comment at the end of a news item they were presenting together.

The story was about the famous twins from Kakamega who were confirmed to be related by blood after a DNA test was conducted.

“Sharon Mitekwa and Melon Lutenyo share identical DNA profiles with the 23 allelic loci tested show 100% perfect match, which is consistent with the two being biologically identical twins,” a statement from Lancet Pathologists reads in part.

Whereas two of the dark-skinned girls, Sharon Mitekwa and Melon Lutenyo, were found to be related, the light-skinned girl, Mevis Imbayi was not their kin by blood.

Their mothers disclosed that they would not separate the three girls but would now form one big family instead.

“The family spokesperson yesterday said that they have no intention of separating them, they become a bigger family,” Victoria started the conversation.

“The more the merrier, that will be an awesome threesome,” Jeff responded, sending the newsroom into an awkward silence.

They gazed at each other momentarily and Rubadiri asked Jeff to read the next news item.

According to the Cambridge dictionary, a threesome means “Three people as a group” but Kenyans have mistaken it all together.

A check on the Merriam Webster shows that the word could be used in a sentence such as “The threesome has been playing music together since all three were in high school.”

The word also has a sexual connotation that many Kenyans chose to point out instead of what the acclaimed news anchor meant.

Thus, Jeff clever attempt at rhyming awesome and threesome was widely misinterpreted by viewers who also noted Rubadiri’s tonguetied moment that followed.
