The Former Head of the disbanded Special Service Unit (SSU) Pius Gitari has been called back to duty with a transfer to Mandera County as the County Criminal Investigations Officer.
Gitari's Deputy, Mr. Alfred Njoka, is equally reported to have been rewarded back and posted to Western Part of Kenya as the Regions Criminal Investigations Officer. The duo has been kicked out of office by President William Ruto's administration when they took over power from the Former President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Gitari and his deputy were given a compulsory leave on October 13, 2022 days after the new and acting Inspector General of Police Mr. Noor Gabow announced that the United under which the duo were serving had been disbanded.
The head of state, Ruto, later took to the public to assert that the reason behind the compulsory leave and disbandment of the Unit was due to massive involvement, an allegation, of extrajudicial killings and cases of enforced disappearance.
The disbandment, marked the beginning of the Investigations to find the possible causes of killings and disappearances of the two Indians who were alleged to have travelled to Kenya prior to the elections and were working with the media team allied to President Ruto.
Their Kenyan driver was reported to have allegedly gone missing, in the pick of elections campaigns, an incident that spurred mixed reactions from Kenyans.
In response to the same, Kenya's Communications Strategist and Political analyst Pauline Njoroge, has taken to the limelight to poke holes President Ruto and his government on why they were so fast to disband the unit and issue compulsory leave to the duos only to come and recall them back into service.
"So what was with all the drama?" Posed Pauline.
Kenyans claimed that Ruto was allegedly doing so to punish the Former President Uhuru Kenyatta and all his staffs and after realising otherwise, he opted to have them back.
