The newly-appointed Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) director Amin Mohamed Ibrahim has been sworn into office after his appointment by President William Ruto on Saturday, October 15.
Amin was sworn-in by Chief Justice Martha Koome at the Supreme Court on Wednesday.
Shortly after taking his oath, Amin took the podium to deliver a brief speech in which he pledged to serve with integrity and professionalism while adhering to Kenya’s Constitution.
“This is a new chapter for the DCI and I want to promise the president and the people of Kenya that I will not let you down. I am ready for the task and ready to lead the DCI to deal with the challenges of our time,” he said.
Amin also stated that he will work to lead the criminal justice branch in order to reduce crime in the country, such as graft and money laundering.
