Public Service CS Kuria claims Former President Uhuru Kenyatta wants to be assigned more than 40 police officers

Public Service CS Kuria claims Former President Uhuru Kenyatta wants to be assigned more than 40 police officers.

Public Service Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria has divulged details of a phone call conversation between President Ruto and his predecessor, Uhuru Kenyatta, concerning the allocation of funds to the retired Head of State’s office.

Speaking during an interview on Citizen TV’s ‘The Explainer’ show on Tuesday night, CS Kuria highlighted that President Ruto briefed CSs on the discussions he held with Uhuru Kenyatta.

According to Kuria, Uhuru, among other things, reportedly expressed concerns about the number of security personnel assigned to him, indicating a need for an increase from the current 40.

“He (Ruto) said they delved into particular issues; they were able to break down issues to do with the police who are guarding the former president because the former president feels that the number is inadequate,” said Kuria.

“He (Uhuru) felt that the 40 policemen guarding him are not enough and it was agreed that he determine whether it is 50, 60, 70 or 80. I only have two security personnel but I understand the threshold for security for retired presidents is enough to justify having over 40 policemen guarding him.”

In addition, Kuria said President Ruto constituted a special committee, whose members include Interior CS Kithure Kindiki, Police IG Japhet Koome, and himself, to address Uhuru’s other grievances, including matters related to his staff.

“There were issues about other workers working for the retired president and President Ruto put up a team comprising of the Interior CS, IG Police, and myself to look at the issues,” he said.

This comes just a day after Uhuru Kenyatta revealed that Ruto administration had denied him access to his retirement package.

Addressing the press on Monday, Uhuru’s Spokesperson Kanze Dena intimated that the retired President’s office has been starved of its rightful packages and the State House has chosen to remain tight-lipped on the matter.
