    Hillary Mutyambai and George Kinoti resign

    Published on

    On Tuesday, September 27, Inspector General of Police Hilary Mutyambai and Director General of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti submitted their resignation letters to President William Ruto.

    During a news conference at State House, President William Ruto said that he had accepted Mutyambai’s resignation and that he would be allowing him to go on terminal leave.

    He added that Kinoti had submitted his resignation and requested that the Head of the Public Service pick an interim replacement.

    While he was introducing his new members of the Cabinet, the Head of State made the announcement.

    On August 26, 2022, the IG made the public announcement that he would be taking a leave of absence to seek medical treatment, although he was vague about the nature of his condition. He nonetheless assuaged the nation’s fears by reassuring them that he was instructed to report straight away to a healthcare center for examination and further guidance.

    Noor Gabow, who had been serving as the police force’s acting deputy inspector general, assumed command at the time.

    In addition, the Kenya Kwanza government and DCI Kinoti got into a spat over Kinoti’s suspected meddling in IEBC affairs. When Ruto was out campaigning, he criticized DCI Kinoti for his handling of the inquiry into the detention of three Venezuelans who were discovered with electoral materials at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).
