Ruto’s administration withdrawals staff, security, and cars attached to late President Moi from his Kabarak Home in Nakuru.
The administration of President William Ruto has withdrawn the government cars and reassigned staff members to the late Daniel Arap Moi’s Kabaraka residence.
The choice was made after the two-year grace period given to the Moi family by the administration of former President Uhuru Kenyatta expired.
Gardeners, drivers, security guards, chefs, and waiters are among the employees who have been let go, according to a Daily Nation report.
The redeployment of the security detail and other staff, as well as the withdrawal of official vehicles from Kabarak, began immediately after Ruto was sworn into office in September 2022.
A section of the security team that was recalled from the Kabarak home has reportedly been deployed to State House.
However, Ruto has opted to retain a number of General Service Unit officers to guard the Moi’s grave and homestead.
Retired President entitlements
The Kenyan law entitles all retired presidents to have at least 30 staff including two personal assistants, four secretaries, and up to six security guards.
They are also entitled to two new vehicles of their choice not exceeding with an engine capacity not exceeding 3000CC which are fully maintained by the government.
They are also entitled to an 80% monthly salary of the serving president, a fully furnished office not exceeding 1000 meters square, and a 15% entertainment allowance of the salary from the serving president.
