NAIROBI CITY, GREENSPAN, KENYA, August 25, 2022 / -- The Deputy Inspector General (D.I.G.) for Kenya Police Services, Mr. Edward Njoroge Mbugua, is a soft-spoken, kind-hearted, and hardworking man. His dedication to service in the security sector has seen him rise through the ranks to become the second most powerful position in the police hierarchy.

It is, therefore, not surprising that that could have been why he won the president's heart and got elevated to this prestigious post he still runs. Before his promotion as the Deputy Inspector General of Police in charge of the police wing, Mr. Mbugua served as the Commandant, Presidential Escort Unit.

The D.I.G., K.P.S. holds a Diploma in International Studies from the University of Nairobi and has over thirty years of experience in the Kenya police service. Besides, he has worked as Deputy Provincial Police Officer in the eastern region and as Mombasa County Commander.

The D.I.G. stands out as a remarkable figure and has touched the hearts of many in society through his acts of kindness. Even after losing his daughter (Ms. Meline Waithera Mbugua) in a tragic road accident in the streets of Nairobi, he took all the proceeds from well-wishers to build a school in the community in memory of her lost daughter.

Mr. Edward Njoroge Mbugua is the founder of Utumishi Girls Academy. He started the school as a key asset of the national police service as it plays a crucial role in shaping the future of the children of its members. The school commits to making holistic, disciplined, responsible, and focused members of society.

"It is my utmost desire to see the girls’ school be a modern center of excellence. This school is one of its kind in Nakuru County and the greater Rift Valley. It is the only school that cooks using the gas system." Said Mr. Mbugua.

During fundraising in remembrance of his late daughter, the guests raised a sum of money totaling 21 million Kenya shillings. Mr. Mbugua channeled the contributions to constructing a girl's dormitory at Utumishi Girls Academy.

"I want to thank all of you for your generous contributions. It is indeed true that we have our girls at heart. Let us work together for the betterment of the school," said Mr. Mbugua.

Through this act of kindness, Mr. Mbugua was awarded the iChange Nations, Dr. Greg Dillon excellence in action award.
