KWS Director Sent On A Compulsory Leave

Brigadier John Waweru, who was selected by former President Uhuru Kenyatta to lead the Kenya Wildlife Service in 2019, has been placed on indefinite leave and has been temporarily replaced by Wildlife Secretary Erastus Kanga.

Soon after attending the event where the Principal Secretary was transferred to the Ministry of Tourism and Wildlife, Waweru was placed on mandatory service.

Waweru's leave starts right away, according to a memo dated December 5, 2022 and sent to the heads of directorates and divisions, field senior assistant directors, wardens, parks, reserves, and stations in charge, and the senior officials have been ordered to let the subordinate employees know as well.

Part of the memo stated that "all officers in charge are required to ensure continuity of normal operations and accord the incoming acting Director General necessary support."

He was placed on a mandated absence, although the reason why is still unclear.
