He was in 2015 among five officers appointed to investigate the Garissa University College terror attack and conduct general response to it.

Shioso replaces Charles Owino who was in May moved to the Kenya National Focal Point on Small Arms and Light Weapons (KNFP) and appointed deputy director.

Owino’s transfer came months after he declared interest in the Siaya gubernatorial seat in the upcoming 2022 General Election.

In February this year, he said he would retire in December to prepare for the polls.
