The DCI Director George Kinoti on Tuesday welcomed a delegation of sleuths from the United States of America.
This came barely hours after a heated exchange between Kinoti and the Chair of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission over three Venezuelans involved in possible election fraud.
According to a report on the official DCI Twitter handle, the event was to strengthen ties between the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) and the State Department Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL).
During the event, the Kenyan detectives were provided with modern tools of the trade to manage crime.
Kenya has been a regional partner of the US in fighting human trafficking. To increase the capabilities of the Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Protection Unit (AHTCPU) the FBI and INL provided their Kenyan counterparts with two Child Adolescent Forensic Interview (CAFI) kits.
Although there may not be any connection between unveiling the FBI and the fallout between Kinoti and Chebukati the timing is significant. It could be the government sending out a message that anyone who attempts to engage in electoral malpractices should know that Big brother is watching.
