    Police Assistant IG Oloonkishu Yiampoy appointed to lead Ruto’s escort unit

    Published on

    On Friday, October 21st, Oloonkishu Yiampoy was promoted to the position of chief of the Presidential Escort Unit from his previous position as Assistant Inspector General of Police.

    He replaced Josphat Mputhia Kirimi, who was assigned to the position of National Focal Point on Small Arms and Light Weapons.

    Yiampoy was the chief of security in the Office of the Deputy President for more than 10 years until he was promoted.

    Additionally, he spent over 26 years serving in several presidential divisions.

    The new commandant of the Presidential Escort Unit will be in charge of Ruto’s protection.

    It will be his responsibility to ensure the safety of the first family and any foreign dignitaries who may be in town.

    Yiampoy, as team leader, will deploy a variety of tactics, including working with the police at the state and other events, forming a wedge or V-shaped formation to protect Ruto’s motorcade, and providing cover for the president in crowded settings.

    To carry out his responsibilities, Yiampoy will work in conjunction with Colonel Fabian Lengusuranga, Ruto’s aide de camp.
