Police officers who do not get accommodation in government police camps will from next month start living in alternative houses.

This comes after Inspector General of Police, Joseph Boinett directed  the affected officers to enter into private tenancy agreements in areas of their own choice.

Boinett said the officers were paid their housing allowance as approved by the Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) and revealed that the reforms and transformation programme directed by President Uhuru in September 13, 2018 is on course.

“All police officers were paid housing allowances by last month, therefore those who will not have secured housing at government owned police line should find alternative effective next month,” said Boinnet.

Police constables living in Nairobi will receive a Ksh18,124 house allowance.
