Court summons out-going Kenyan IGP David Kimaiyo over resignation

The High Court has summoned outgoing Inspector-General of Police David Kimaiyo to explain the circumstances of his resignation.

Justice Isaac Lenaola on Monday ordered Mr Kimaiyo to appear before him within 24 hours to explain whether he wrote an official resignation letter or he was coerced to quit.

The judge made the ruling in a case filed by three activists challenging Mr Kimaiyo’s resignation.

The three, Felix Kiprono, Fredrick Odhiambo and Kipchumba Kiptoo, claim Mr Kimaiyo’s resignation violated the regulations of the National Police Service Commission (NPSC).

They also want the NPSC stopped from recruiting a new inspector-general of police.

Mr Kimaiyo resigned last week after a second terrorist attack in Mandera County that left 36 people dead.
