President Uhuru Has Sacked The Commissioner-General of Kenya Prisons
President Uhuru Kenyatta has sacked the Commissioner-General of Kenya Prisons Service Wycliffe Ogalo following the Kamiti Maximum Security Prison jailbreak.
This comes just a few days after three terror suspects allegedly fled from the prison in unclear circumstances.
The president has made an immediate replacement by appointing Brigadier (Rtd) John Kibaso Warioba as the Commissioner-General.
Yesterday seven prison wardens from Kamiti Maximum prison have been arrested following the escape of three wanted terrorists from prison under unclear circumstances.
The escape of the three was confirmed by the detectives from the director of criminal investigations. The DCI revealed that the three suspects who are now wanted by the Kenya police allegedly managed to trick and run from police officers for an unknown destination.
The report has it that one of them was arrested when he was found with explosives trying to bow parliament buildings while the other was arrested while trying to Sign Kenyans into joining the Alshabaab terrorists.
The third suspect was arrested after he was linked to the Garissa University attack that led to the death of several students from the university.
DCI early yesterday morning declared a Ksh 60 million bounty on the suspect.
However, the Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiangi visited the area yesterday and he associated the escape of the three criminals to lack of competency from the police who were in charge.
The Interior CS then ordered the arrest of the 7 prison Wardens who were taken to their cells for more investigations.
