He failed to report back to work on January 2021 and an arrest warrant was issued against him on Makadara Law Courts. Court ordered the officers to look for him and to present him on court in March 2021 but their search bore no fruit. Then they were given another date. Process to remove his name from payroll begun.

Reuben Kimutai was involved in a hit and run accident on December 20th 2020 and admitted in KNH where he was registered as Augustine Neto in the ICU.
