You have a duty to exercise disciplinary control within the office and I know when you settle down in that office there will be a lot of clean up, I wish you all the best in the delivery of your mandate,” said Kinuthia.

Kinuthia promised that his commission will give Amin total support to execute his mandate assuring Kenyans that they have the right person to run the DCI’s office.
