IG ordered to reinstate Kandara Mp Wahome’s security detail

The high court has ordered Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai to restore Kandara Mp security detail.

Justice James Makau said that it is illegal for the IG to recall Wahome’s security detail without telling her the reason behind the action.

He added that there was no evidence that the Legislators had commited an offence that could lead to such action.

“In this petition, I find that there is no evidence of the petitioner having been accused of breaking any law nor has she been informed of any investigation being conducted against her; if any,” the judge said.

The judge added that purpoting that the Legislator harrased an election official without expounding further could not suffice.

Wahome told the court that her service to the Nation and her constituents has been impeaded by withdrawal of her security detail.

She also said that the act was aimed to intimidate her into changing her political affililiations and stance against bad governance.

On 20th of January ,the police said that any VIP’s caught or suspected to be an offence will have his/her security withdrawn till the court clears him.

It is on this premise that Wahome’s security detail was withdrawn.

The mp through her lawyer termed the decision descriminatory since all other leaders still have their security details intact.

She said the move exposed her to security risk as ever since she was elected as an Mp ,she has enjoyed the security.
