DCI boss George Kinoti is not just your random top police boss. He is the man whose ethical values are unshakable even in the face of death.
Unlike most bosses, he is rarely seen unless his attention is needed like in the case of the murder of Dutch Tycoon Tob Cohen and Sergeant Kipyegon Kenei.
Here are things you did not know about Kinoti:
- Kinoti walks with a rosary wherever he goes
He walks around with a rosary in his pocket, one he has kept for more than 30 years — it was blessed by Pope John Paul II.
He prays several times a day and never undertakes any mission, large or small, without seeking divine help.

In case you were wondering where he comes from now you know.
3. He wanted to be a priest

“My childhood vocation was to be a priest. I was brought up by a single mother, a very religious person.
She used to teach us that we should not worry about where our next meal would come from.”

28 are from a shooting incident on Jogoo road while the others are from a different incident.

5. Kinoti suffered from malnutrition.
