There was drama at police headquarters, Vigilance House, on Thursday, when the outgoing Depuity Inspector General Grace Kaindi refused to leave office, until she receives a dismissal letter from her employer.
A section of the media has reported that the Inspector General of Police, Joseph Boinett could not move embattled Kaindi whose fate is already sealed.
President Uhuru Kenyatta sacked Kaindi on Tuesday and nominated GSU commandant Joel Kitili to take over in acting capacity until a substantive DIG is appointed.
Was Kaindi fired, forced to retire or Retired
The replacement of Kaindi, who has largely been seen as a nonstarter has sparked uproar from different quarters.
Fida has already condemned the President’s decision, arguing that it goes aginst the spirit of the constitution.
In a bid to contain the clear the air, the NPSC has dismissed the firing claims, adding that Kaindi attained retirement age of 60 and gracefully left office.
However, Grace Kaindi’s sacking was long overdue. She narrowly survived when her boss, David Kimaiyo and the then Interior and National Co-ordination CS Joseph Ole Lenku were kicked out because of incompetence.
