New officers admitted for para-military training in Emali
In an effort to harmonize the working relationship between the disciplined arm of Kenya Forest Service and the professional ranks, the Human Resource Division has embarked on an paramilitary biased induction course for all senior officers who have supervising roles in the Conservancies and Zones. The course being undertaken in conjunction with Administration Police at their Senior Officers Training College in Emali has already received the first batch of 35 officers who include Heads of Conservancies, Assistant Commandants and select Zonal Managers.
The course comprises physical training, drills; training on roles of security forces is aimed at entrenching a positive culture change as well as improving productivity and efficiency.
To launch the first in a series of such courses and evaluate the pioneer group’s progress, the Senior Deputy Director, Mr. E.N. Mugo along with the Commandant, Col. Kimani and Deputy Director – Human Resource , Mr. J.O.Olayo were at hand on the fourth day to get the early feedback.
In his speech Mr. Mugo informed the group that the course was one of the recommendations made by the KFS Harmonization Taskforce and aims at filing gaps that were noticed in the mismatched hierarchical relationships within the organization and especially between the disciplined and non-disciplined personnel. The course aims at sharpening the senior officer’s commitment, dedication, endurance and discipline even as they learn security related skills in line with potential threats that they face while on duty.
Mr. Mugo observed that the pioneer group was making history and would be expected to implement the lessons learnt once they are back at their various stations.
