President Uhuru Kenyatta has sacked the Commissioner General of Prisons Service, Wycliffe Ogalo, following the Kamiti Maximum Security Prison break.
President Kenyatta replaced Ogalo with Brigadier (Rtd.) John Kibaso Warioba.
The appointment follows the briefing to the Head of State by the Interior Ministry’s Department of Correctional Services regarding the security breaches at the Kamiti Maximum Security Prison that led to the escape of three inmates.
The Head of State met with the Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Government and Prison bosses just a day after three terrorism convicts escaped from the Kamiti Maximum Prison.
The meeting also comes in the backdrop of increased cases of terror attacks in neighbouring Uganda and the civil unrest being experienced in Ethiopia and Somalia.
Following the escape of the convicts, the Cabinet Secretary for Interior, Fred Matiang’i, visited Kamiti Prison where seven prison wardens were arrested for allegedly abetting the escape of the three hardcore criminals.
Matiang’i vowed that arrests and prosecutions would follow after the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) moved in to investigate the prison break.
“Definitely, there is a certain level of irresponsibility we have to deal with in this particular case,” he added.
DCI offered a Ksh60 million cash reward for information that will lead to the arrest of the three terrorism convicts who broke out of the prison at 1 am.
