Kenyan President nominates Noordin Haji as spy agency boss

by CKG Editor

Noordin Haji who was serving as Kenya’s Director of Public Prosecutions has been nominated as the new Director General of the National Intelligence Service.

Mr Haji, a former top officer at the spy agency, will replace Major-General (Rtd) Philip Kameru if Parliament clears him. Maj-Gen Kameru has been the top spymaster since 2014 and is set to retire.

“Consequently, it is notified that Excellency the President has, In accordance with Section 7 (1) of the National Intelligence Service Act, nominated Noordin Hajl, CBS, for appointment as the Director-General of the National Intelligence Service,” President William Ruto said in a presidential decree.

Mr Haji took over the position of DPP in March 2018 and had two more years to the end of his eight-year non-renewable tenure.

Mr Haji, whose late father, Yusuf Haji, was a long-serving public officer and later Garissa Senator, is a law graduate of Wales College, Cardiff. He also holds a second master’s degree in national security policy from Australian National University.

He was admitted to the bar in 1999 and later joined the Attorney-General’s office as a state counsel.

Mr Haji will be vetted by the National Assembly and if approved, will be President Ruto’s chief adviser on national security and sit on the National Security Advisory Committee and the National Security Council.
