The inspector general of police Martin Okoth Ochola has ordered the Police Force to start validation process of the officers who missed out on previous validations to enable the ministry of public service to continue paying their pension.
Through deputy police spokesperson ACP Polly Namaye has revealed that police have uploaded a list of 1034 unvalidated police pensioners to the police website.
‘’Officers are expected to appear for this validation exercise in the Ministry of Public Service before 14th July 2019. Failure to appear for this exercise could result into the officer(s) being deleted from the pension’s payroll.’ she said.
She encouraged former Officers to have their National IDs, an introduction letter from Police (HRM). For the pensioners who died, letters of Administration are also required. Important to note for the unvalidated pensioners is that survivor benefits became effective on 24th March 1994 and any records before this date are not entitled to any monthly benefits as the law was not yet effected
