KINOTI LAUDS GOVERNMENT EFFORTS TO TRAIN 20 MILLION CITIZENS ON DIGITAL SKILLS, AS HE CALLS FOR RESPECT FOR POLICE OFFICERS
The Director General – DCI George Kinoti, has lauded an initiative by the ICT ministry to train over 20 million citizens on digital skills terming the initiative as timely, in the increasingly globalized world that we live in today.
The DCI Chief noted that the Directorate had digitized most of its services and embraced modern day technology in solving crimes, by employing Forensic science in investigation of cases. This he said had led to the expeditious resolution of crime puzzles that would have hitherto taken long to resolve, placing the Directorate at per with established investigative agencies across the world.
Mr Kinoti said that the Directorate had developed the required human resource capacity including experts in Chemistry, Biology, Medicine, Mathematics among other scientific fields who are the leading brains behind the improved performance of the Directorate.
At the same time, the Director General called out those belittling the work of Police officers based on their academic qualifications. Mr Kinoti who termed the verbal attacks as misplaced wondered why those making fun of our academics failed to celebrate the emotional intelligence displayed by police officers providing security.
The DCI chief added that police officers should be congratulated for being emotionally strong, when provoked under such circumstances, while they continued providing their services dutifully.
Mr Kinoti was speaking this morning during the launch for training of 20 million citizens on digital skills, at a function presided over by the Cabinet Secretary for ICT Hon Joe Mucheru, at a city hotel.
