From Nurse to DCI: Story of only woman shortlisted to replace Kinoti



By Judith Gicobi

After being named the sole woman on the shortlist to succeed former Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) boss George Kinoti, Esther Chepkosgei Seroney has garnered media attention.

Seroney’s nomination attracted interest in her among Kenyans, and despite having virtually little social media presence, some have started organizing for her to be appointed the first female DCI Director.

Esther is the current Bomet County Police Commander (CPC), according to a post made by the DCI on Monday, October 10. She started out working in the same capacity in Homa Bay County.

Following the consolidation of the numerous police departments, former Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinett selected seven women as county commanders on January 21, 2019.

In 2018, prior to her elevation, she served as the director of the Homa Bay investigative office. In 2017, she also worked as the criminal investigations officer for Busia County.

Unknown to the general public, Seroney has nursing experience. She attended the Ortum School of Nursing from 1983 to 1986.

In 2002, she enrolled in a certificate program in law enforcement at the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) training facility in Nairobi.

The DCI applicant graduated from Kenyatta University with a bachelor’s degree in security science and management (2019).

Esther Seroney, an Elgeto Marakwet County native, will compete against nine other candidates who have also been shortlisted, including Amin Ibrahim, Bernard Barasa, Eliud Lagat, Gideon Munga, Esther Seroney, David Birech, Jonyo Wiso, Nicholas Kamwende, and Paul Ndambuki, and Dr. Simon Wanderi.
