The Client Securex has grown from a small investigations company in 1970 to one of the leading Security Solutions providers in the East African region. Operating in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Rwanda, the firm offers a total security solution to both businesses and their executive employees.

The Challenge With the vision of being East Africa’s premier security solutions provider, Securex was looking to drive forward its product development, customer service and operational standards to support its growth and delivery. They were looking for an experienced and effective individual capable of leading large teams, managing complex operations, and delivering working solutions to address East Africa’s security challenges.

Daniel offered 25 years of versatile and effective leadership within security management, as well as excellent experience working with a top tier employer, GE.


“My experience with Kenyans Come Home was very pleasant. I particularly appreciated the fact that I was given the time to choose who appealed to me and most importantly, I was not rushed to make my decision. I have no hesitation in recommending KCH to other organizations.”

Tony Sahni, Group MD, Securex

“KCH managed to turn a nerve-wracking experience into an easy passage.  The processes they have in place and obviously perfected over the years ensured that I and my family, were never stressed.  The information shared were timely, accurate and in the right format.  The time spent with me prepared me for any eventuality.  From the first day of contact till the successful completion they were by my side.  The fact that KCH is well respected in East Africa also assisted a lot and is something that should not be underestimated.  All I can say to the team is thank you.”
