Hillary Mutyambai the Man Set to Put on Joseph Boinnet’s Shoes as IG

By Virginia Mwangi / March 14, 2019




The expiry of Joseph Boinnet’s four-year term on 10th March had the country excited with the curiosity of who would fill the big shoes of Boinnet.

The President did not keep the citizens waiting as the constitution has the duration stipulated, but, his appointee threw Kenyans into more curiosity as none of the names expected made it and instead one Hillary Mutyambai, whom Kenyans barely know, made it.

Who is Hillary Nzioki Mutyambai?

Hillary Nzioki Mutyambai is now set to be Kenya’s 3rd Inspector General of Police, if the Parliament approves him, after the outgoing Joseph Boinnet.

Mutyambai has been a spy which explains why so little is known of him and the Deputy Director in charge of Counter-Terrorism in the National Intelligence Service (NIS)

Mutyambai has risen over the ranks from being a junior police officer in 1991 at the Kenya Police Force to a Police Superintendent and then to the Directorate of Security Intelligence in 1998.

It is at the Directorate of Security Intelligence that Mutyambai has grown to the rank of Deputy Director in charge of Counter-Terrorism in the National Intelligence Service.

Mutyambai’s Academic Qualification

Hillary Mutyambai holds a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Nairobi (UON)  and a Master’s of Arts degree in National Security Policy from the Australian National University.

Joseph Boinnet is also said to have acquired his Master’s degree from the same institution, the Australian National University, as Mutyambai.

Mutyambai has undergone special training on counter-terrorism and advanced security in the U.S, Operational Management in the UK and Policing, Intelligence and Counter Terrorism in Israel.

Hurdles Ahead

Mutyambai has to convince the National Assembly’s security committee that he is qualified to become Kenya’s next IG when he goes through the vetting process.

It is only after Mutyambai’s nomination is approved that the President will go ahead to appoint him as the Inspector General of Police.

Mutyambai will then be in charge of over 100,000 police officers in the country and implementing the controversial housing allowance for the officers will be one of his major tasks as police officers remain adamant.
