‘Linda Boni’ officers now get redeployed

The National Police Service has redeployed police officers serving in the ‘Operation Linda’ Boni forest.

Senior Assistant  Inspector General of Police Benson Kibui  ordered for the changeover of officers who had earlier been deployed in the operation since February.

The letter orders several police bosses drawn from five regional commands to nominate suitable officers for deployment in the exercise set to start on Wednesday.

Kibue ordered that 10 officers   be drawn from Nairobi, five from Coast, six from Central (6), Nyanza (3) and  Eastern (5).

The operation was called by then Interior Cabinet secretary Joseph Nkaissery following the Mpeketoni attack in 2014 where more than 100 people were killed and others maimed when more than 200 heavily armed al Shabaab militants raided a village in the area.
