The Kenya Human Rights Commission congratulates Tom Kagwe, the Senior Programme Officer for having successfully applied and been appointed to the Board of the Independent Policing Oversight Authority (IPOA). Tom has been instrumental in pushing for security sector reforms here at the KHRC where has has served for the last six years.The KHRC is definitely proud to be associated with such a hardworking and passionate individual who has been at the for front of working for alternative and transformative leadership in Kenya.

Knowing how poorly the police department has performed, IPOA has a Herculean task ahead but it is our sincere hope and belief that it will bring the requisite changes to transform the security sector of this country. Expectations from the public are high ranging from stamping out corruption to a faster rather than slower transformation from the Police Force to the Police Service.
