The Director General of Criminal Investigations, George Kinoti, on Tuesday, July 19, 2022, paid a courtesy call to his Rwanda counterpart Mr. Jeannot Ruhunga, at the Rwanda Investigations Bureau (RIB) headquarters in Kimihurura, Kigali.
The two discussed matters related to crime affecting both countries and how to reduce the level of transnational organized crimes across the eastern African region.
Mr. Kinoti lauded his Rwanda counterpart for the great strides that RIB had made in combating crimes through modern technology.
He particularly noted the integration of critical services between RIB and other government agencies such as the Department of Immigration that had made it easier for the Investigations agency to track down criminals.
On his part, the RIB Chief appreciated the partnership the two institutions continued to enjoy over the years, especially in training, the fight against terrorism and violent extremism, and sharing information to combat crimes.
Mr. Ruhunga further observed that the disintegration of RIB from the Rwanda National Police Service in 2017 to an independent institution under the Ministry of Justice had enabled the agency to concentrate on its core business of investigations, crime prevention, and detection.
The two security chiefs appreciated the need for more mutually beneficial engagements for a safer region, especially between the INTERPOL National Central Bureau (NCB), Rwanda, and Kenya's NCB based at DCI headquarters.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
