Kileleshwa Member of County Assembly (MCA) Robert Alai claimed that the security detail of former President Uhuru Kenyatta has been withdrawn.
In a statement via Twitter the ODM Politician revealed that his sources within the security forces have told him that the government has withdrawn Uhuru’s security detail.
“Sources within the security structures have revealed to me that the security detail of former President Uhuru Kenyatta has been withdrawn. The security detail was withdrawn yesterday, no reason was given for the withdrawal,” Alai tweeted.
His allegations come a day after Nandi Senator Simon Cherargei urged President Ruto to withdraw the privileges Uhuru has been enjoying since he handed over power in September 2022.
“Under the law when you retire as president you are given some government support line vehicle security, money and office but if you saw him on Monday, he is still active in politics he hasn’t retired,” he noted.
A retired president is entitled to at least 30 office and home staff, including two personal assistants, four secretaries, four messengers, four drivers and up to six security guards.
He is also entitled to monthly pension fuel, house and entertainment allowances and Ksh 332,062 to cater for his electricity, telephone and water bills among others.
